The Pennine Cycleway North (NCN Route 68)

The Pennine Cycleway North (NCN Route 68)

Still a relativley undiscovered classic route through the centre of Northern England

Named after and mirroring the famous long distance walking route along the spine of
England, the 355 miles long Pennine Cycleway between Derby and Berwick upon
Tweed is split into 3 maps. The most northern 104 miles links the North
Pennines with the near border town of Berwick upon Tweed and traverses some of
England’s most dramatic unspoilt landscapes. After briefly sharing the C2C
Cycle Route, the climbs through the North Pennines are replaced by the hilly
sections of Hadrian’s Wall country. After sharing some 7 miles of Hadrian’s
Cycleway, the oft fought-over remote ‘debatable lands’ are crossed and the
route meanders over lonely hill and dale to edge the undulating Cheviot Hills before
traversing flat lands to its end. South to north is recommended for this
wonderful challenge route.

Unfortunately the Sustrans map for this route is out of print, Cycle Northumberland have produced a gpx file below to help with route planning. Please note the gpx file is an approximation of the route only.
