Coasting the Coast to Coast

IF anyone saw a C2C cyclist shoot over his handlebars on the seafront at Roker, Sunderland, at the weekend, and felt a momentary pang of concern as he landed with a howl and his bike on top of him – don’t worry. I was merely establishing a new tradition. CLICK HERE FOR FEET FIRST and tips on riding the C2C on a road bike with narrow tyres.

    It took me 3 days with camping gear ! Couldn’t find a campsite around Alston. There was one in town but appeared to be part of a scrap yard. Ended up in someone’s garden half way up a hill out of Nenthead.

      But I bet you enjoyed every minute of it! We camped on the playing fields near the river. Chain Events had an arrangement with whoever owns it and we used the changing rooms. It’s a hard ride, though.
