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 awards.

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 -  For 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.
