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.

This is our second trip … Hadrian’s Wall being the first …and we find you and your support material, email communication, and general organisation excellent in all regards. It did help having had a previous trip to know how to use everything. It is comforting to know you are there to help if we need it. We look forward to booking another trip soon! Thanks.

At fairly short notice I had everything booked the way I’d have liked. Everything went to plan. Accommodation was of good standard and all owners and staff were very amicable.
