I’ve enjoyed exploring the island of Britain by cycling coast-to-coast in various ways. Here’s a selection.
Standard Coasts to Coasts
I’ve done all the conventional coast-to-coast trips, and some less conventional ones.
The most popular is the C2C (Coast to Coast, aka Sea to Sea), with the more recent Way of the Roses a close second.
You can read my article for Cycling UK comparing all the routes here.
(The TPT is nowhere near as accessible as I said, though. The Glasgow-Edinburgh route – not mentioned in that article – is almost all car-free on a tarmac canal towpath: good for families and dawdling.)
I love the serendipity of the arbitrary. This series of rides linked places on opposite coasts of Britain that just happen to rhyme.
Barmouth to Yarmouth has been done by a few people, but the others are even more niche.
I haven’t included Flamborough to Bamburgh (F2B) here, because although it rhymes, they’re on the same coast, so I won’t link to it or even mention it.
If you have any suggestions of additional rhyming coast-to-coasts (such as Rye to Cley, which may be allowed in certain dialects, and which I may do at some point) do let me know.
