Collection by All Points North

All Points North is an unsupported journey through the North of England by bicycle. There will be ten control points to ‘check in’ to along the way. The control points will be scattered across the north of England in a roughly circular distribution but with a couple of wildcards thrown in the centre.Riders will set off from our HQ in Sheffield at 8pm on Friday, 22nd May and make their own way to the ten control points in whichever order they choose to visit them. Riders can choose to ride between controls in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction.The course will be approximately 1000 km in length but ultimately the distance that the riders cover will depend on the route that they choose to take. The ride is completely unsupported, so once the riders are out on the road they’re looking after themselves completely. Entrants can choose to ride solo or in a pair.There are no prizes up for grabs and no official cut-off time, although we are expecting most riders to be back at HQ in Sheffield by the evening of Monday, 25th May and will be serving food to finishers from 8pm onwards.

    Berwick Pier

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Actually not what most people think of as a pier but a breakwater protecting the Tweed estuary and Berwick harbour. Possible to cycle along the pier to the lighthouse at the end for excellent views all around. Views include Lindisfarne and the other Farne islands as well as the local beaches and good views westward to Berwick. Great symbolic starting point for the Pennine Cycleway.
    If cycling along the pier be careful not to cycle off the edge!

    Blanchland

    Road Cycling Highlight

    This quaint village near the Derwent Reservoir is like something out of a period drama, complete with the remains of a 12th century abbey

    Castle Howard

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Castle Howard is a magnificent stately home that was built in 1699 by architect John Vanbrugh. The Baroque building has been home to the Howard family for over 300 years. Set amongst extensive gardens and parkland, the castle is known as one of the great palaces of Europe and deservedly so.

    You can visit the gardens from 10am - 5pm, or stop by at the tea rooms. The house is open from March until November. Tickets cost £19.95 per adult. Further information: castlehoward.co.uk
