A lesser known coast to coast than the C2C, the Reivers route takes you to the interior of Northumberland and Cumbria, with a foray into Scotland. Newly waymarked for on and off road routes it makes for an exciting updated ride for the region!
Conceived to be a mirror image of the popular C2C Cycle Route, The 187 mile long Reivers Cycle Route traverses some of the least populated and most scenically wonderful terrain in England. The 60 or so Northumbrian miles are uniquely special beginning near Ponteland in the East and taking cyclists through increasingly hilly landscapes all the way to the Scottish border. Attractive unspoilt villages and hamlets are interspersed by the countless isolated farmsteads which pepper this increasingly challenging route. Ever changing scenery provides visual delight and enjoyment and the Kielder Forest Park is a treat of huge proportions and beauty. Though mapped to be ridden east to west, this is a truly bi-directional route though west to east is probably more likely to be wind assisted.
