The Haydon Hundred

The Haydon Hundred

The Haydon Hundred is a brand new cyclo–sportive running in the South Tyne Valley in South West Northumberland. The 3 routes include a 100km main route with several unique features making it a “must-do” event for any serious cyclist. There is also a 60km route, tough enough in its own right, and a family oriented 20km fun ride.

Starting in the riverside village of Haydon Bridge the route ascends both slopes of the South Tyne Valley, crossing Hadrian’s Wall twice before heading for Alston and the spectacular panoramas of the North Pennines. It has been carefully chosen to combine a testing cycling experience with the area’s most scenic and historic assets, and participants are guaranteed an unrivalled day out. Unique Features of this event include:

Ride through a National Park and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

Spectacular High Pennine scenery and panoramic views

Crossing Hadrian's wall – twice

Riding up the Alston cobbles: 160m at 13% followed by 200m at 10%

3rd highest Surfaced road in England at 1998ft 609m (the two higher ones, both 2057ft 627m are within 7 miles so why not stay over and ride them on Sunday?)

A perfect opportunity to prepare for the Virgin Money Cyclone event later in the month

The Haydon Hundred takes place on Saturday 8th June 2013, starting and finishing in Haydon Bridge. For bookings, timings and other event details please visit our website
