Coast to Coast Cycle Routes is THE practical guide to crossing Britain, containing all the information any cyclist could possibly need when embarking on a trip. It takes you from West to East and East to West three different ways, following Britain's three most popular coast to coasters: the C2C, Hadrian's Cycleway and the Reivers.This is the 19th edition of the eat, sleep and drink pocket guide, and contains new mapping including off-road sections and spiral binding to make it more user-friendly. It also contains a scenic new route from Penruddock to Ullswater, past Lowther Castle, Morland, Appleby and Middleton-in-Teesdale before linking back with the old route at Stanhope. Called 'Wiggo's Way' after Sir Bradley, this new loop is probably the most scenic of the entire route.This pocket guide to the spectacular cycle routes across the northern Lake District and Pennines also includes a more cycle-friendly alternative to Allenheads and Rookhope: the Weardale Alternative, takes in St John's Chapel and Westgate. There is also an option for ending the route in Sunderland via the Lanchester Way and the great city of Durham.Much of the routing is traffic-free, along compacted cycle-friendly tracks built along old railway lines. The routes are all thoroughly signposted and somehow manage to eke out the least busy country lanes, taking in many places just off the beaten track. This guide has up-to-date listings of all the best pubs, B&Bs, hotels and restaurants. But importantly it also includes maps, topographical profiles, lots of route information and other practical help. Plus historical and cultural background to the fascinating and often beautiful communities the cyclist meanders through. The ethos of the book is to Go Slow, to imbibe at leisure some of Britain's finest and yet often deserted landscapes, whether it be the wilderness of Northumberland or the liquid gold sunsets of the Cumbrian coastline. But it's also handy for the cycle nut who wants to do it over a weekend: every trip, no matter how short, needs careful planning.
