The Pennine Cycleway
briefly shares the C2C Cycle Route, then climbs through the striking North Pennines
and rolls over 7 miles of hilly Hadrian’s cycleway. Finally, it breaks out on its own, meandering over the undulating Cheviot Hills before coming to flat lands. South to north is recommended.
Named after and mirroring the famous long distance walking route along the spine of England, the 355 mile long Pennine Cycleway between Derby and Berwick upon Tweed is split into 3 maps.
The most northern 104 miles links the North Pennines with the near border town of Berwick upon Tweed and traverses some of England’s most dramatic unspoilt landscapes. After briefly sharing the C2C Cycle Route, the climbs through the North Pennines are replaced by the hilly sections of Hadrian’s Wall country.
After sharing some 7 miles of Hadrian’s Cycleway, the oft fought-over remote ‘debatable lands’ are crossed and the route meanders over lonely hill and dale to edge the undulating Cheviot Hills before traversing flat lands to its end.
