This year’s cycling holiday was planned in a rush as we were preoccupied with Christine’s ailing father, followed by making funeral arrangements. We settled on a route involving taking the bikes to Carlisle by train, riding north-east to join the Sustrans Coast and Castles route to Berwick-on-Tweed then along part of NCN1 to Sunderland before returning to the west coast by riding the Walney to Wear route in reverse.
