Hadrian’s Cycleway is a classic Great British ride which covers some of northern England’s most interesting and diverse scenery. Join us on this 120 mile ride from the west coast to the east coast of England and enjoy one of the UK’s most historical and memorable tours.
We will be following the west to east Hadrian’s Cycleway route developed by Sustrans which primarily uses National Cycle Network route 72.
After dipping our wheels in the Irish Sea at Silloth we will snake our way around the beautiful Solway Coast before heading into the undulating countryside of Cumbria. We then cross the hilly, stunning, historical sites and sights around Hadrian’s Wall and further into wild Northumbria before dropping down to the river Tyne and the post-industrial, landscape of modern day Newcastle before dipping our wheels into the North Sea at the beach in Tynemouth.
The route that we take avoids main roads and keeps to quiet country lanes and cycleways. A guide cycles with the group and your luggage is moved for you each day. You are provided with detailed route notes and maps so that you can cycle at your own pace or you can cycle with our guide who is always at the back of the group. The back up van will carry spares and a few spare bikes and will be on hand to help with any mechanical problems that may occur en-route. Breakfasts are provided each morning and lunches are provided at a pub or cafe en-route.
We aim to take the hassle of organising a tour away from you so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourself and completing the Hadrian’s Cycleway challenge. Your bags are moved for you each day and you have the knowledge that if anything goes wrong with your bike we will be on hand to fix it for you or provide a spare bike if necessary.
