On Monday June 8th, 9 children and 6 staff members from Highfield Community Primary School were dropped off in Whitehaven to start the gruelling Coast to Coast bike ride. They cycled a total of 143 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. Here is a break down of each of the days:

Day 2, Keswick - Alston (68km of riding and 1205m of climbing, 6hrs30mins)
Day 3: Alston - Consett (56km of riding and 1015m of climbing, 6h 30min)
Day 4: Consett - Tynemouth
In total the children cycled 222km, with 3347m of climbing, in 21h59mins.
Their teachers had this to add 'The children were fabulous and adopted a really positive attitude for the duration of the ride. We met a number of fellow cyclists doing the Coast to Coast and they couldn't believe that we were doing it with a group of Primary school children! This was an amazing experience that the children will never forget'.
We would like to congratulate all the children and staff who were involved in this amazing experience, you should all be extremely proud!
