|I am plannign on completing the C2C ride next month. I have a road bike, do you think the terrain of the route will be suitable for my bike?|

|Just to say to those thinking of completing this on a road bike, I did so last year and it more than coped with the terrain and was definitaly suitable.|

|Fantastic weekend from whitehaven to sunderland.|
Shout out to Arragons cycle shop in Penrith, and North Pennine cycles in Nenthead, absolutely fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly and very very helpful, and a great price too.
Shops like that make the bike ride much easier

|What a fantastic experience. 1st day Whitehaven to Penrith. Steady ride with a few moderate hills and beautiful countryside.|
2nd day Penrith to Rookhope this takes in the harder terrain up and over Hartside and Carrigill phew! with the most amazing veiws.
day 3 the hard climb out of Rookhope gets you ready for the Waskerly way down to Sunderland what a relief. wouldn`t have missed this for anything Brilliant!
