BBC TV Tough people contest

I have just received an email from the BBC wanting volunteers to appear in a new show to find the toughest people on the planet. They know that aficianados of the C2C will fall into this category. Anyone interested should have a look at this and get in touch with me. http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/beonashow/worlds_toughest_army

“We’re looking for the toughest of the toughest people in the country to tackle some of the hardest military courses in the world. Our candidates will attempt a uniquely constructed programme based on real techniques used by Special Forces from around the world.”

Happy birthday C2C – 20 years old this summer

If you want a leisurely few days and the BEST PLACES to EAT, SLEEP & DRINK, then you’ve come to the right place. The C2C might be tough, but you can do it with planning, even if you’re not quite up there with Bradley Wiggins. Speaking of whom, please note that we have added a fabulous new loop WIGGO’S WAY from Penruddock to Stanhope, in honour of the great man.

BUT If you want to do some serious road burning, read on. Check out the experiences of others, send in your own. Links to blogs are most welcome, as are your pictures. There’s technical help as well as restaurant tips.

And don’t forget to mention C2C Guide if you stay at the many places on our properly researched listings. We’ve been in business since the route opened in 1994, so we know what we’re talking about.

In addition to Wiggo’s Way we have also added a new section called the Weardale Alternative which will ease the pressure on the Rookhope to Allenheads section and now links Nenthead with Stanhope via St John’s Chapel on the A689. More information to follow.
