Two wheels, two days, one very good cause

The Railway Children has revealed details of its Coast to Coast Cycle 2022 – a classic two-day bike ride from the west coast to the east coast.

The charity is challenging people to test themselves with the 214km cycle ride across the country while helping to raise money for vulnerable children.

Anyone signing up by July 14th will have their sponsorship ask reduced by £100.


Katie Mason, events manager, said: “Our cycling trips are always popular and this year we’ve introduced a brand new one that is filling up fast.

“Taking place in September our Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge asks participants to clock up 214km over two days, traversing the UK from Whitehaven to Whitley Bay.

“You’ll be crossing the Lake District, home to England’s highest mountains and deepest lakes, so those tricky hill climbs will be rewarded with a well-earned lunch before reaching Alston.

“Here you’ll have a night to rest and recover before hitting the trail again heading towards Northumberland National Park and the ancient ramparts of Hadrian’s Wall.

“The route ventures upwards passing Hadrian’s Wall and finally reaching St Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay.

“We’ll provide all the support you need on the way as well as food, accommodation and a lift back to the start if you need one. All you need to do is raise a minimum amount of sponsorship to support our work with children around the world – and get training.”
