Your Trips

This is the section of the site where you can read other people’s C2C trip journals, articles etc which have been submitted to me for inclusion. We are looking forward to a bumper crop of accounts as 2010 looks like being a particularly busy year. Any photographs we use in the 2011 edition of the book will be rewarded with a free copy.

For more C2C trip journals, visit Earlier Trips and the Related Links page where you can browse many more online Trip Journals and other related sites.

If you wish to submit your trip journal or possibly a C2C related article then simply use this form.

Please feel free to send more details of your trips, plus pix. In the meantime I would like to award a prize (a copy of the 2010 Coast to Coast book) for the slowest crossing. Come on folk, form an orderly queue and let me know who has taken the longest to make the crossing. In an era in which we are encouraged to perceive the world as a ‘Global Village’, we here at Cycle Guides want slow things down and turn the globe back into Planet Earth, a large and mysterious place which takes forever and a day to explore.

Sign up to www.goslow.org.uk. A website is in progress and we’ll let you know more shortly…

In the meantime read crazy Rob Scott’s account of a non-stop C2C2C. We do not encourage such bravado, but I have to take my hat off (see his account, below).

Stunning ride – one of the greats

November 12th, 2012 by David Bell

We had previously cycled, the C2C, Walney to Wear and Hadrian’s Cycleway so this one would be different. We planned to cycle a fairly relaxed mileage – on mountain bikes with panniers – to give time to see things along the route. Time pressure meant we would be rushing if we started in Newcastle and … [Read More]

Bordering on the sublime

November 12th, 2012 by Anonymous

Monday eighth of October 2012 Up at literally the crack of dawn and a ¬†frantic ride down to the station fuelled by porridge. Caught the train to Leeds fine, ¬†very crowded. Got the bikes on the Newcastle train okay. Arrived at Newcastle station at 9:30 and then had the most expensive bidon filling session ever… … [Read More]
