Starting in the Thames estuary, the 200+ mile route bi-sects south London, passing Richmond park, bridging the Thames, onto Wiggin’s Olympic time trial route, plus west-country highlights, lush Vale of Pewsey, Silchester village hall, mendip hills, breathtaking Cheddar gorge, before arriving on the seafront finish at Burnham-on-Sea.
A double-century feat over an epic 200miles leaving from the beachfront at Tynemouth at the first ray of ocean sunrise aiming to reach the esplanade at Prestwick to witness the (hopefully glorious) sunsetting into the sea beside the Isle of Arran. A route full of stunning vistas, wilderness, heaths, rivers, lochs, castles and beaches, a challenge to inspire you when pedalling the longest day.
Coast-to-Coast, from Cesenatico to Tirrenia, from Adriatic sea to Tirrenian sea, from east to west, from sunshine to sunset. The most romantic long distance cycling challenge: 271 kilometers and 3300 to climb, to chase the sun.
