I am planning a coast to coast ride for me and one of my friends, We are doing this in order to raise some money for charity. I have looked at a couple of routes and have settled on doing route 62 from southport to Selby. Then from Selby onto Hornsea. I live in south Manchester so have ridden a fair bit of the trans-pennine that passes nearby home but never up into the pennines.

I have a few questions about the tracks and riding on route 62 as it goes up into the hills. How technical does the riding become? I don't want to be riding on black routes for the entire journey but the odd stretch would be ok. I can find routes round the worst bits. I'm not the most experienced offroad.

Does anyone have any specific pointers or sources of general information that they could pass on?

Thanks in advance
