Hadrian's Cycleway Cicerone guide book

 

This is the Hadrian’s Cycleway Cicerone guide to the 174 mile coast-to-coast cycle route across northern England, following the corridor of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.

From Ravenglass in Cumbria through Northumberland to South Shields, with an alternative Tynemouth finish, on cycle paths and quiet country roads suitable for cyclists of all abilities.

The route allows cyclists to explore Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site, visiting Roman forts including Vindolanda and Housesteads as well as milecastles, abbeys and historic towns. Other highlights include the Cumbrian coast, Tyne Valley and the famous Sycamore Gap.

While the main route is described from west to east over three days, the guide provides plenty of information about other options. Advice is given at the end of each stage about how to complete the route from east to west, as the route can be used in connection with other coast to coast routes to create week-long round trips. Other itineraries include a two-day Wall Only ride from Bowness-on-Solway to South Shields, and a ‘More Wall Alternative’ to Day 2. The guide also features extensive listings of accommodation, bike shops and other cyclist-friendly facilities.
