Ever heard of the C2C?
Of course you have - developed by the biggest sustainable transport
charity in the world, it's the most popular long distance cycle route in
the UK and it's won a string of prestigious tourism and environmental
Well, Chain Events is run by the man who started it all. David Gray was the
first Sustrans employee in the North East of England and he was behind the
planning, mapping and promotion of the 140 mile scenic cycle route linking the
western and eastern coasts of Northern England. While still with Sustrans, David
organized challenge rides every summer from 2003-08 covering the length and
breadth of England Scotland and Wales, every one different but unforgettable to
those who were there, and who came back year after year.
Now his years of experience and knowledge can bring you the kind of adventure
you've always wanted. The simple mission for Chain Events is to take care of all
the frustrating and tiresome logistics of organising transport, luggage,
mechanical support and so forth and just allow the cyclists to get on with
pedalling. Simply select your challenge, contact Chain Events - and let David do
the rest. All you need is a bike and a bum to stick on its saddle !
News Flash -
the past year, John
Grimshaw, CBE, the founder and former Chief Executive of Sustrans and one of his
former colleagues David Gray have been working on a feasibility study for
the conversion of the scenic disused railway between Biggar and Peebles in the
Scottish Borders into a multi-user route for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders.
This has now been incorporated into an exciting new route - the Scottish C2C
from Solway to Forth. See News section.
