Northumberland National Park

Cycling in Northumberland National Park.


“A breathless experience”

Welcome to Northumberland National Park. Hundreds of miles of relatively empty lanes and bridleways wind through hills, rocky outcrops, and dense forest. Vast skies, wide horizons, and a wonderful rolling countryside, dotted with farmsteads, tiny hamlets, and small villages, with welcoming pubs and cafes.

Whatever your cycling experience, Northumberland National Park has routes suitable for most abilities. Two National Cycle routes cross the Park with Hadrian’s Cycleway Route 72 running east-west along the southern boundary from Ravensglass to Tynemouth, and the Pennine Cycleway (Route 68) heading northeast from Haltwhistle to Berwick upon Tweed through Kielder Forest, linking the National Park from south to north via Bellingham, Wooler, and the foothills of the Cheviots. A second east- west route, the Reivers Route 10, runs from Tynemouth westwards again through Bellingham, the Kielder Forest and on to Carlisle and Whitehaven.

So saddle up, and come and explore Northumberland National Park!


Explore one of England's best kept cycling secrets. In Northumberland National Park we have so many quiet country lanes, ranging from meandering river valley saunters to wild open moorland blasts! From off-road adventure in the National Park to freewheeling, following one of the many way-marked cycle routes, the choice is yours.

Fourteen cycle routes radiating out from Wooler and Haltwhistle, and a further five new circular routes around the North Tyne Valley between Bellingham and Kielder are now free to download from the North Tyne Cycling Routes page.
