A spokesperson from the charity said, “The Sea To Sea is an incredibly popular route, taking in some of the finest scenery across the North. What better reason to take on the challenge than to raise money to help other people enjoy all the fun that riding a bike can offer.”

Money raised by the event will help to fund the ongoing maintenance of the cycling route which is estimated to cost around £67,500 per year.

The trip costs £300 to take part, with £100 going to the Sustrains charity. The rest will be used to funn accomidation and bed and breakfast for the riders along the route.

The event will take place between 21st – 23rd September 2012 and those interested can enter at www.sustrans.org.uk/challenge or alternatively can call Saddle Skedaddle on 0191 2651110, or email [email protected]
