Year 6 Coast 2 Coast Cycle Challenge – May/June 2016

Over the May half term a number of Year 6 pupils participated in the Coast 2 Coast Cycle Challenge. The Coast 2 Coast Cycle route is 135 miles long and runs from Whitehaven on the west coast to Roker Pier (Sunderland) on the East Coast. It follows the Sustrans cycle route and included cycle paths, old railway routes and quiet roads.
