Coast to Coast
A mostly straightforward route to follow with a few sections that require a deviation or two where some busy intersections break up the natural flow of the cycle track network.
The cycle track route sometimes takes you up and over bridges, in a lift or two, and occasionally veers away from main roads, but the system works well.
From the ground, it’s probably the least picturesque of all the routes, but the variety of terrain and challenges ahead makes this coast-to-coast ride rewarding to complete.
