The Cycling - Introduction

The Coast and Castles inland route is truly the best way to see Northumberland’s rugged coastline, with its impressive history and quaint towns. You soon leave the hustle and bustle of Newcastle’s quay side, swapping it for the flat lands of the east coast, with its endless coastal views. Despite this route’s 198miles length, its is seen as one of the easier long distance cycle rides in the UK, due to its relatively flat profile.

Our 4 day ride is a great multi-day package for the recreational rider looking to take in the sights as they go. Our 3 day package extends the daily cycling distances, making it a great challenge for the fitter rider, wanting to move quicker through this stunning scenery.
