hi all, i was just looking for some help and advice.

me and a few friends are looking to do the C2C in August time in memory of my late mother. there will be approx 8-10 of us in total.

this is the first time any of us will have oen thid and are looking for some advice on whrere to stay, cmpanies that could help, best routes to take ect.

We are all regular cyclists and believe we could complete this in 2 days. as we are doning this more for the fun side to raise money then we could maybe do 3 days.

Any information would be greatly apprecizted or if anybody could point us in the right direction

In my recovery also to convince myself the cancer had gone for good I did c2c workington to Sunderland in one shot 13 hrs now that's a worthy challenge I intend attempting to try it both ways next year 300 miles don't think I can do it but willing to try if others are intetested
