Planning to do a coast to coast ride from St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay this summer over around 7 days. Planning to do it on a mountain bike carrying bivi kit.
I know there is a road route and I have found some info on Tim Woodcock’s ‘Wheelwright’s C2C' and Dan Cook's version of this but the latter two sound a bit gnarly in places. I was wondering if anyone has done an off-road version but still fairly easy (trails, minor roads and easy single track - definitely no push ups!). My emphasis will be on the endurance side rather than technical side so don't mind going further to find nicer riding. Any thoughts?
That looks like a great resource! Thanks for that, brill!
Has anyone had any experience of fitting panniers to their mountain bike? I'm planning to take a rucksack too but feel I might need to take some weight off my back. Any ideas?
