These three routes, one of which offers two optional loops, give the chance to explore the countryside and quieter roads in and around Haydon Bridge and the Tyne Valley. The ascents and descents of the valley sides offer cyclists some fairly challenging exercise which is rewarded by excellent panoramic views of the valley, Hadrianâ€™s Wall and beyond. All the routes start at The Bridge Community Library and Visitor Information Point in the centre of Haydon Bridge, where cyclists can obtain further information prior to the ride. The routes are chiefly on quiet country roads with some off-road sections, which are nevertheless suitable for most types of bicycle.
