Sea to Sea

The Sea to Sea is the classic, long distance cycle route in the UK. Starting from the historic port of Whitehaven on the Irish Sea (we use St Bees) and finishing in Tynemouth on the north east coast. The route passes through the Lake District, Eden Valley and the Pennines, all offering fantastic scenery.

This route is well waymarked and uses a mix of specially constructed cycle paths, off road tracks and minor roads, with the occasional busier road.

It is recommended to cycle this route from west to east, to take advantage of the prevailing wind, but we can offer this route the other way round.

We have a range of full Sea to Sea holidays from 2, 3, 4 or 5 day options. Make your choice depending on your available time and pace you find most comfortable.

Our Holidays

We have a total of four holidays. They all cover the whole route, taking from 2 to 6 days, depending on how far you want to cycle each day, and how much time you want to look around.

We offer 4 holidays along the whole Sea to Sea Cycle Route. The long distance cycle ride is well waymarked and there are many variations on the route, so it can include some challenging mountain biking or just roads and cycleways. You will require a good level of fitness and a good touring bike to complete the route over 2 or 3 days, the shorter holidays are for the more serious cyclist.

Client Feedback

There was no problem with any aspect of this 14 day walk, which is a compliment to the Mickledore logistical and planning process. Information supplied was extremely comprehensive. I am sure a lot a thought has been put into those ‘what if’ situations.Thanks very much for doing such a good job.

The guiding materials were excellent and my husband has developed an enthusiasm for the Romans to match that of our youngest son. I really couldn’t recommend the trip or your service highly enough. It was not something we could have put together on our own with any degree of confidence so you have opened up new possibilities to us.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience hiking Hadrian’s Wall. Your choice of places for us to stay was excellent. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful, and their inns were well cared for and comfortable. We would recommend Mickledore to anyone considering hikes in England.
