A couple from Teesside, who cycled the coast-to-coast in America for a MS charity, have had their bikes stolen.
Dave and Janice Noble pictured on the left, took on the challenge with another couple. They cycled from Seattle to New York. That is 100 miles per day for 35 days.
It stretches from the Cumbrian coast to the North Sea. The C2C cycle route attracts thousands of riders every year.
Now there are proposals to re-route the cycleway, close to Alston, in order to avoid a steep hill.
