The Reivers Cycle Route (NCN Route 10 / RCR)
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.
