Day 2 was hard with some very long steep and shorter very very steep hills. The weather was atrocious, raining all day...so very few picture opportunities

Reasonable weather and a long steady climb out of Whitehaven saw some time for a few pics

The start...9:30 on the 24th August 2012 at Whitehaven.
Thanks for checking in.
I plan to do the C2C Cycle Route - from the West coast of England to the East coast. It's 140 miles from Whitehaven on the West coast to Tynemouth (Newcastle) on the East coast and I plan to do this over 3 days (there are some BIG hills in the way as it goes over the Lake District and The Penine Way!)
You can find out about it here http://www.c2c-guide.co.uk/
As I'm currently 20 Stone, I'll be aiming to lose a bit of weight beforehand - but regardless of how that pans out I will be cycling this route in August.
I would love for you to donate some money to a local charity that I think deserves some recognition - St Helenas Hospice. They do tremendous work to help people with terminal illnesses to enjoy their lives.
I have no target figure - but I would just love to raise as much for this charity as I possibly could.
Every penny you donate will be straight to the charity. Accomodation, travel and any other requirements will be at my own expense.
So please donate if you can.
Thanks so much!
