    Your eleventh stage of cycling the Pennine Cycleway leads you through the outskirts of the Northumberland National Park through spectacular nature and interesting sights from Elsdon to Wooler.

    As soon as you start pedalling, you will find yourself surrounded by gorgeous countryside: trickling streams meander through hills and birds of prey circle over farmland with very little traffic on the road. After an initial ascent, you can enjoy a nice downhill stretch. Stage eleven doesn’t have any big climbs.

    After 11 miles (18 km), you will reach Alwinton village. Here, you will meet the muddiest section of the Pennine Cycleway. You may want to consider taking minor roads to the east of the official route, especially if you are riding in wet weather.

    Over the next stretch, you will cycle through many fords. Although just about cyclable, you will find small footbridges just in case.

    After a total of 34 miles (56 km) of pedalling, you will arrive at the final destination of stage eleven, Wooler. Nestled amongst the Cheviot Hills, Wooler is a pretty town with a tourist information centre, various eateries and a range of accommodation.
