Cheviot Hills Mountain Bike map

The Cheviot Hills Mountain Bike Map includes a Cheviot Hills MTB Orbital plus 12 challenging MTB loops.

This map/guide reveals the best mountain biking routes in the Cheviot Hills of Northumberland (and over the border into Scotland).

The Mountain Bike Cheviot Hills Orbital is a classic tour which is three routes in one:

  • The very challenging one day MTB Cheviot Hills Orbital:82.5 km / 51.6 miles (bi-directional)
  • The demanding two-day MTB Cheviot Hills Orbital:82.5 km / 51.6 miles (bi-directional)
  • Two separate stunning loop tours of the Cheviots

– the North loop 63 km / 39.5 miles (anti clock)

– the South loop 42 km / 26 miles (clockwise)

The recommended DIRECTION OF TRAVEL for all but the South loop is anti-clockwise.

The excellent MTB traverse route really is best ridden in an easterly direction.

The recommended Direction of Travel for the western flank is north to south in terms of terrain, views, challenge, scenery, situations and brief passage into Scotland. Some would say the eastern flank route is less dramatic but it’s certainly no less challenging.

One Day MTB Cheviot Orbital Challenge:

The Two Day MTB Cheviot Orbital: There are refreshment and overnight stops avialable at Alwinton and Wooler with a very welcome refreshment opportunity at Ingram.

SAFETY INFORMATION

The rolling Cheviot Hills aren’t high but should be treated with the same respect as any mountain range so prepare accordingly. There are many remote valleys and navigation can be demanding.

The rounded summit ridge is exposed to the wind and in poor visibility it’s easy to lose your bearings.

Phone signals are weak and irregular. Do not attempt any of the routes in less than clear visibility.
