I'm trying to organise a coast to coast event for my friends and family in Lincolnshire. I've done the c2c and w2w but i would like to do something that will end on the east coast a bit closer to their homes. Has anyone any ideas???

You could try the transpennine trail?

http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk


Alot of it is off road and the middle section has some really scenic bits around Penistone (north Peak district/south Yorkshire).
I don't know much about the other sections as I live in Nottingham..

It may not be on the door step but its a bit closer..

Another option from the midlands if you really want to stretch your legs is the pennine cycleway:

www.cycle-routes.org/penninecycleway

It's 360 miles from Derby to Berwick on Tweed(nearly Scotland). So it probably needs to be tackled in sections.

I hope to do the northern section with a deviation to Holy Island in the next year or so.
