The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.

C2C cycle route

The C2C (sea-to-sea or coast-to-coast) cycle route is a long-distance route stretching across the North of England from the west coast to the east coast. In the west, it has two branches starting from Whitehaven and Workington, converging near Keswick. After crossing the northern Pennines, the route splits at Consett with one branch passing through Newcastle to Tynemouth, the other heading to Sunderland. The route is approximately 135 miles long.
