Journey through time on this historic cycling holiday following in the footsteps of Roman soldiers in Hadrian's Wall country before cycling along the stunning Northumberland Coast with its numerous ancient castles and dramatic landscapes. Heading inland from the border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed you'll cycle along the beautiful Tweed valley before gently climbing over the Moorfoot Hills and dropping into Edinburgh.
Utilising the National Cycle Network from Bowness-on-Solway on the West coast, through Newcastle and onto Edinburgh, this unique cycling holiday in the UK allows you to experience some of the rich heritage that Cumbria, Northumberland and the Borders have to offer, from cycling in open hill country, through peaceful river valleys and along dramatic coastlines. The route passes through some of the most beautiful parts of England and skirts a number of fascinating Roman sites including Birdoswald Fort, Walltown Quarry and Vindolanda as well as the ancient castles of Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh to name but a few. If tide and time allow it is worth taking the additional 7 mile round trip to visit the historic island of Lindisfarne, otherwise known as Holy Island, with its peaceful priory and prominent castle.
After arriving into Newcastle you spend the first night in this vibrant city before we transfer you the following morning to Bowness-on-Solway and the start of your ride which ends 290 miles later in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, where we will meet you and transfer you back to Newcastle for your onward journey home.
Accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back-up are all included in the price and we also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self guided.
