On Saturday 28th June 2014, 5 intrepid Seymour employees completed the gruelling Coast to Coast cycle route from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Hartlepool on the North East Coast. A total of 153 miles was covered in 2 days over varying terrain.
With a stopover approximately half way in the small Northern Pennines hill town of Alston. The route traversed the southern Lake district with stunning scenery and hilly terrain before heading up and over the Northern Pennines with its strikingly varied scenery and multitude of steep hill climbs and valley descents before approaching the flatter and picturesque Derwentside & County Durham countryside and finally finishing at the Historic Headland in Seymours home town of Hartlepool.
We raised a total of £1,072 for the Hartlepool Hospice
