We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Currenly walks in England can restart from the 29th of March. Walks in Scotland may take place with a maximum of 15 participants, but all participants (and walks) must stay within their own local authority area. Walks in Wales are not currently able to restart.
The second of three linear day rides taking in sections of the 136-mile Sustrans Sea to Sea cycle route which runs from Whitehaven on the Irish sea to Sunderland on the North Sea. This is the hilliest section, covering almost 60 miles across the North Pennines. Click here for a map of the proposed route.
Please make your own accommodation bookings at Whitehaven, Penrith, Consett and Sunderland as needed. Details of suggested accommodation are given in the members only section below.

Terrain / Difficulty
The route will be along mainly minor roads (with a short section of main road over Hartside Pass) with a massive 5799ft (1822m) of climbing so please ensure you have a sufficient level of fitness to commit to this section as there are no railway stations along the way to drop out! If riding an e-bike you may wish to bring a spare battery or range extender!
