    … in the UK that ends at the coast (or within rolling distance)? I’m not necessarily talking about being spat off a descent and on to the shore but something that gives a nice final couple of downhill-ish miles to a coast side town village?

    Golspie? Start up a damn big hill, ride almost uninterrupted downhill to the trailhead, then ride about 200 metres down the hill to the beach

    South Downs to Eastbourne or drop off at any coastal town between Winchester and Eastbourne? Depends if you like wrinklies and a blue rinse?

    The Torridon loop has a terrific descent down into Annat which is right on the edge of Loch Torridon.

    It’s not exactly what I had in mind!

    Thanks for the suggestions, amazingly they’re in the three corners of the country about as far from me as is possible.

    Any ideas within half a day’s travel (train ideally) of Manchester/North West?

    Why not look for a lakeside finish in the lakes/peaks – much closer to home!!

    Head out on the North Wales coast mainline Bangor/Holyhead bound but get off at Llanfairfechan Station – for an ascent of Drum. A quick scoot along the cycle track to Abergwyngregan and then cycle uphill for 2 hours. Get to the top of Drum, look at the view, sit in the cairn and then turn around. However at the cross roads halfway down by the pylons carry straight ahead rather than retrace your steps by going left, it’s signposted on a wooden 4 way marker post. It’s a better descent and takes you straight down to Llanfairfechan. Dependant on weather and fitness – 2hrs up 30mins down.

    based purely on driving past to my inlaws, maybe Conwy in Wales? No idea but looks like a possibility

    Looks like North Wales is the best bet, I had a feeling that might be the case, scheming on a plan for a two dayer with bivvy/camp so makes sense really. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. 😀
