The North Pennines abounds in two-wheeled excitement and adventure! If your passion is moorland tracks beneath your wheels then look no further! Alternatively if road routes are more your style - the AONB has quiet country roads a plenty!
The area has some of the country's best cycling. Quiet country roads, a range of traffic-free routes, unequalled scenery and a wide choice of places to stay make it a great destination! The C2C, Pennine Cycleway and Walney to Wear (and Whitby) National Cycle Routes all pass through the North Pennines.
In Hamsterley Forest you will find a variety of trails provided by the Forestry Commission ranging from leisurely forest roads to technical singletrack. The North Pennines is also home to the Roof of England Sportive and the Ride the Reservoir race.
Several businesses offer cycle hire including North Pennine Cycles in Nenthead, Pedal Pushers in Brampton and Wood 'N' Wheels in Hamsterley Forest.
