The route is ideal for both committed cyclists and those who want to take to two wheels to explore while they’re on holiday, because it’s mostly flat.

 


You’ll be able to enjoy some of the amazing views that North Northumberland is famous for – from Lindisfarne and its ruined priory, to the glorious Bamburgh Castle and Farne Islands, down to Dunstanburgh and Warkworth Castles and beyond.
