planned a gravel ride.

  • Taking in some of the Gravel Tracks used by the Dirty Reiver. Do not be fooled by the shorter distance, this route is a real challenge. The terrain is remote with the only cafe on the route at Kielder Castle itself.

    There are plenty of starting places with one option to make the Castle your half way point

  • The bridge and path over the Lewisburn is open again. Ran over it last Friday.
