The Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site forms a spectacular part of the 174 mile journey traveling west to east for the Hadrian’s Cycleway. Covering beautiful and unspoilt meandering countryside & coastline and opportunity to enjoy the market towns, villages & cities of Hexham, Corbridge & Newcastle as you traverse through the landscape. Roman forts and museums pave & enhance this route which authenticates the aptly named Hadrian's Cycleway. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, BALTIC for Contemporary Art and The Sage will add a modern twist on what is otherwise a heritage trail of outstanding universal value between the Glannaventa Bath House at Ravenglass and the Arbeia Roman Fort and Museum at South Shields.
Route 72 is a cycle trip that can be done in 3 days, with mainly flat roads and a few steep inclines, but if your plan is to take in the sights, then a gentle 3-4 days will allow you to visit some of the heritage sites, such as Lanacost Priory and Alauna, Maryport.
The route mainly consists of quiet lanes, quieter roads and intermittent traffic-free paths. You will also travel promenades and riversides, and along the cycle route, and there is little doubt that you will see others enjoying this particular cycle route.
We can fully support your ride from start to finish and supply bike transport to the start point and collection from the end point. Baggage transfers can be arranged and delivered to your chosen accommodation along the route ahead of your arrival.

Our team, some with first aid training and with a general knowledge of bike mechanics, if requested, are enthusiastic, friendly and eager to help.

Our transfer packages for riders, bikes and bags will vary depending upon whether you’re collected from your home, multiple collection points, transport hubs or the amount of people travelling in your group.
Firstly, if you need to be transported to the start of the cycle route you’re about to embark, you need to establish where you would like to be collected with your bike & baggage. Also, will this be one point for all or does each of your group require separate collections from different points?
Next, depending on the length of your cycle route and the number of days you’re cycling will dictate how many stop-overs you require. Find this out and we will collect your baggage and take it ahead of your arrival to your chosen accommodation, then collect it the following day and do the same for the duration of your cycle route. At the end of the ride, we will collect you and your group with bags and take you back to your pre-arranged drop-off point, again this may be one point for the whole group or individual drop-off’s.
All of our transfer packages for riders, bikes and baggage are individually priced with all of the above taken into consideration. We are very competitive and take care with each enquiry having already transported thousands of enthusiastic riders and their invaluable bikes and even more bags.
