On Yer Bike

No matter what your ability, whether you’re a road cyclist or a mountain biker, Northumberland National Park has you sorted. Cycle routes go coast to coast and along Hadrian’s Wall. Ride them in full or in part whether you’re a seasoned pro or out with the family.

Routes in the Park

These are just some of the cycle routes you can get involved with...

The Sandstone Way

The Sandstone Way is the newest mountain bike route in the Park. It’s a 193km ride between Berwick and Hexham along a sandstone ridge linking numerous sandstone features, crags and outcrops. The stunning route heads into the unexplored interior of the Park, before finishing in style on the banks of the River Tyne at Hexham.

Hadrian’s Cycleway

An epic 174 miles from Ravenglass to Tyneside. Ride through some of England’s most dramatic and wild countryside, taking in magnificent coastal views, breathtaking countryside and Roman forts.

C2C Sea to Sea

The UK’s most popular challenge cycle route. 140 miles passing through the northern Lake District before climbing the Pennines, and descending to the railway paths of County Durham.

Pennine Cycleway North

Pennine Cycleway North runs 104 miles from the North Pennines to Berwick-upon-Tweed; still a relatively undiscovered classic route, make sure it doesn’t remain that way!

Reivers Cycle Route

Reivers Cycle Route opened in 1998 and is 173 miles long. It is also known as the ‘Return C2C’ as it takes you from the end of the west-to-east route all the way back to the start of the C2C.

The Curlew Cup

We’re passionate about cycling and are proud sponsors of the The Curlew Cup; part of the Women’s National Road Race Series. The annual 100km race is based around the Northumberland villages of Stamfordham and Matfen.
