Entries are now open for the 2022 edition of the hugely popular Coast to Coast in a Day sportive.
The event challenges riders to cross the north of England in a single 150-mile ride. With over 4,000 metres of climbing it's a truly testing day in the saddle.
Starting on the west coast in Seascale, the well-honed route plotted by organisers Open Cycling takes you through three of England's finest National Parks.
Your 150 mile journey begins with the infamous Lake District passes of Hardknott and Wrynose, but that's just for starters - you'll then cross the Yorkshire Dales, the Vale of York and the wild North York Moors, before finishing in the seaside town of Whitby.
We rode the Coast to Coast back in 2014 and it's one of a select handful of UK rides where the term "epic" does not feel an exaggeration.
With the option of camping the night before, and transfers back to Penrith the following day, it's not a weekend you - or your legs - will forget in a hurry!
The 2022 edition takes place a little later than usual, on Saturday 9 July. Entries are open now, priced £95.
The ride sells out in a matter of hours each year, and with over 200 riders having transferred their 2021 entry to next year places are likely to be in shorter supply than usual.
