    A curcuit of Kielder Water. Start at Kielder Castle. Wildflowers, bird and insect life are outstanding. Plenty of stopping off opportunties, good paths and well signed. Not a flat simple round the lake ride though. If you don't like connifers, this isn't for you! Pick a bright sunny day as in the wet/overcast this sort of area can be a bit bleak. My planning after Falstone was wrong and I took a Forestry road which was impossibly rough. Stick to the Lakeside Path.
