Where to end it

June 10th, 2012 by

Q: I’m planning on attempting the C2C for the first time this year. Which point would you recommend ending at, Sunderland or Newcastle? Is there much difference in the route (terrain, views etc)
Also is it possible to end the route in Whitby, if it is how many more miles would this add to the journey?
Cheers, Charlie

A: I think a slim majority opt for ending at Roker, Sunderland. There’s a brilliant ride along the Wear. You could go down to Whitby. To do this take a look at the Sustrans website and call up their excellent map of the NCN and trace a route from Stanhope or Hownsgill Viaduct.
