coast to coast UK
I am planning on doing the coast to coast off road in about 8 weeks, but have just found out I am pregnant. I am obviously still keen to carry on but am aware that it may not be possible. I am wondering if anyone has completed this journey before whilst pregnant and any advice or tips you may have would be most helpfulPosted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriber
You should be able to do any UK coast to coast in a lot less than 8 weeks!
Seriously though, you are pregnant, not ill.
Take your time, don’t push things too hard and you should be fine. I have friends who’ve done a lot more at an even later stage of pregnancy. If you are still concerned seek medical advice!Posted 4 years agonbtMemberdavenorth1 wrote:
don’t do it. why risk anything when u don’t need to
bear in mind I’m not a parent (not from lack of trying, just lack of success) but I understand that this view is leading complicated births – when women were more active it would encourage the baby into the right position for birth. Personally I think that you should listen to your own body, if you feel good to go then enjoy the ride, but stop when you thin you shouldPosted 3 years agogazcMember
if you do it, take your time. my girlfriend was riding up to about 5/6months when it started getting too difficult. that was just local stuff and commuting, i think the last big ride was about 3 months in, which included part of the C2C route to newcastle as we live by it. hills were the most problematic, which there are a few of on the C2C in the lakes/western pennines
i take it you doing the sustrans C2C route btw? if you are doing it with a support vehicle maybe you could do the odd flatter day and get lifts for the hilly days
oh and congrats on the news 🙂Posted 3 years ago
