Cycling Routes in Hadrian's Wall Country

Cycling Hadrian's Wall is a great way to explore the Roman ruins and picturesque surroundings of this beautiful belt of the country. Hadrian's Cycleway is probably your best bet if you're thinking of exploring Hadrian's Wall by bike, as it travels through the entire World Heritage Site. The route runs between Ravenglass on the Cumbria Coast and South Shields, which is not far from the city of Newcastle on the North East Coast of England. The route is 174 miles long, so is not for the faint-of-heart, but if you do tackle it you'll be rewarded in due course by some absolutely breathtaking scenery. The path passes by many Roman sites, including the Bath House at Maryport and the Roman Museum at Senhouse.

If 174 miles sounds too daunting for you, or if you have already taken in the delights of Hadrian's Wall, then fear not, as there are other cycling routes on offer. There are a variety of do-in-a-day routes that are available to those pressed for time whereas the Sea-to-Sea Route and the Reivers Cycle Route are great, long-distance alternatives to Hadrian's Cycleway. The two routes run from the Irish to the North Sea and are the perfect way to experience the beauty that the North of England has to offer.
