Extraordinary remote landscapes and rural to the very core, cycling in Northumberland feels like a true adventure no matter where you pedal. This huge county is home to the diverse Northumberland National Park with its rolling hills, atmospheric valleys and open moorland. Riding here lends itself to daydreaming as surely as it lends itself to photography. 

Would you like to explore cycle routes in Northumberland’s deepest forest? Riding through Kielder Forest Park is a magical experience with immense working timber woods which welcome cyclists with open arms. Tranquility is easy to embrace and, if you’re eagle-eyed, you might spot a red squirrel. 

Northumberland has the kind of coastline that draws cyclists and captures their hearts. Castles, mudflats and beaches define bike rides along this lengthy coastline, over half of which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
