Our challenge is to cycle the breadth of the UK across some of the most spectacular and wild countryside that England has to offer. Leaving the West Coast we head inland, carving our way over the Cumbrian Mountains and southwards through the Lake District National Park. From Kendal we head east, crossing into Yorkshire, through the heart of the famous Dales and onto our destination: the East Coast and the historic town of Whitby.
Our route takes us ‘up pass and down dale’ as we traverse the country: gruelling climbs, magnificent descents and stunning scenery await us!
