Hadrian’s Cycleway

We undertook our Hadrian’s Cycleway tour in July 2013.  Our Hadrian’s Cycleway tour from Ravenglass all the way across to South Shields. Along the way we followed the Solway Firth around to Carlisle and then over the pennines through Hadrian’s Wall country to Tynemouth. Finally we crossed the River Tyne and cycled over to the official finish at Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields .

Sustrans says the Hadrian’s Cycleway route “stretches the length of Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site in the North of England. Magnificent coastal views, breathtaking countryside, roman forts and museums, inspiring modern attractions, quaint villages and attractive market towns, all set in a World Heritage Site: this cycle route has it all! You will ride through some of England’s most dramatic and wild countryside where you can “get away from it all” and enjoy the freedom of cycling in this unspoilt area.”
