Guide to the 140 mile Coast to Coast (C2C) Sustrans cycle route from Whitehaven or Workington to Tynemouth or Sunderland. It takes in some of northern England's finest scenery on cycle paths, forest tracks and minor roads, with off-road options and a selection of taster day rides also described in the book. The route is described as a 5-day ride, from west to east with variant first and final legs, from Workington and to Sunderland. Itineraries are also included for 2, 3 and 4-day options, and riding the route from east to west. Detailed profiles and OS mapping illustrate each stage, and information is provided for those riding the route with children. The C2C is a popular cycle challenge, whether undertaken over a single day or a full week. The Hadrian's Wall and Reivers' Way cycle routes also offer great options for a return trip.

Jeremy Evans has produced books on all his favourite outdoor activities, with titles covering sailing, windsurfing, trekking, camping, powerkiting and inline skating, as well as cycling on road and on trail. In the early days of mountain biking, Jeremy pioneered cycle routes across the UK, then discovered the delights of riding Audax marathons up to 400km. When family life intervened, Jeremy encouraged his wife and three lovely daughters to enjoy extensive cycling tours in France, Switzerland and the UK. Needless to say, his family all helped to ride and research the magnificent C2C route, cycling across Englands finest landscape from coast to coast.
