The classic long distance cycle route for a challenge over the spine of England (The North Pennines)! A route of some 136 miles which traverses the North of England taking in 4 counties of England
Only a small section of this classic route passes through Northumberland, but what a section! The highest point of the C2C at Black Hill (609m) is on Northumberland/Cumbria Border offering a unique view into not just Northumberland but County Durham, and Scotland! The C2C is an excellent way to travel into Northumberland by bicycle, and connects up with ALL of the other long distant routes featured!
Several sections offer an on-road or an off-road alternative. Recommended direction is west to east to take advantage of the prevailing wind.
