For seven years hundreds of fundraisers have enjoyed the sun, rain and fantastic views of the Solway Coast at the annual Cycle the Solway event.

The cycling event is a fantastic, family friendly event on the quiet and relatively flat roads of north west Cumbria. The routes provide the perfect challenge for cyclists of all ages and abilities, from the club cyclists to the families and fundraisers enjoying a good day out.

For the very first time 2018's event will take place over two days and will be a festival of cycling for the whole family. This year the event will start from the scenic Watchtree Nature Reserve.

The money raised at this year's event will be shared between Eden Valley Hospice & Jigsaw, Cumbria's Children's Hospice and Watchtree Nature Reserve.
