Walney to Whitby Cycle Route (W2W)

Book Tickets Online

About

You can now cycle ‘coast to coast' from Walney Island in Cumbria to Whitby via Tan Hill, thanks to the opening of Regional Route 52 between Barnard Castle and the historic North Yorkshire port.

Inspired by the original Sea to Sea Cycle Route (C2C), this well signed route is 179 miles (288km) long and is fully mapped. Mostly on country lanes, back roads and cycle paths, with a few off-road bits, It's a classic ‘coast to coast’ cycling touring adventure done as short break or longer holiday, challenging in both distance and terrain, but really quite achievable with some preparation.

And for those feeling energetic, why not add to the adventure by cycling an extra 20 miles (32km) along the coast-hugging ex-railway Cinder Track to Scarborough?
