C2C Whitehaven to Whitby (kind of)

Postby rb982 » 30 Aug 2018, 10:51am

HI All,

My brother and I are cycling from Ravenglass (south of Whitehaven) to Scarborough next weekend and are on the hunt for some suggestions and advice on a route. We have 3-4 days, are pretty keen and fit cyclists, and will be riding on hartdtails with panniers and tent etc.

We are looking for a mix of road, trail and bridleway etc. Due to the weight on the bikes and the time we have we understand we can not do a full mtb trail route such as the "wheelright route", but equally we don't want to do a fast road route as we want to explore the best the Lakes, Dales and Moors have to offer as much as possible.

Suggestions for a route or even some must-do cycle stretches, villages and view points en-route will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
