We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations. In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment. All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.
The third 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 shortest and by far the easiest of the three days – nearly all downhill or flat taking us along part of County Durham’s vast network of cycle paths built along former railway tracks. Optionally, you may wish to extend the ride northwards along the coast and Tyne estuary to reach Newcastle upon Tyne. 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.
