This year’s challenge will involve two days of breathtakingly scenic cycling across a stunning World Heritage Site. As well as the famous wall itself, Roman forts and museums, quaint villages and attractive market towns, before culminating in a much-deserved celebratory dinner for participants on the final night.
The group will depart Whitehaven on 16 September and pedal to South Shields over two full days of cycling.
The route comprises a mixture of on-road and traffic-free sections, running primarily on country lanes and quiet roads, interspersed with sections of traffic-free path, promenade and riverside path. As most of the route is either on minor roads or well surfaced off-road tracks most bikes are suitable, although full slick or racing bike tyres are best avoided.
The coastal sections at either end of the route are relatively flat, and there are only a few steep, short hills in the central section. Riders will climb approximately 300m over 65 miles of cycling on the first day in the saddle, and 900m over 85 miles on the second day’s riding.
Both team and individual entries are encouraged.
