Rural Coastal cafes ice creams fish & Chips. Twisty, fast entertaining
All elements, rural, coastal, twisty, long fast straights.
Evening run out
Mixed road types, excellent fun.
Great cruise through the countryside. Good straights with some twists. Road surface excellent as is visibility.
Good road surface with mix of straights and twists. Great scenery along the way. Stop off for the views of the Derwent Reservoir a must.
mainly rural roads with plenty of bends, watch out for sheep on roads.
Long way to Berwick
Countryside. Twisties and coastal
A little bit of everything.
Long day in the saddle early'ish start.
Good roads throughout the region
twisties, bendies and hillies!
Cracking roads. If you don't love this route it may be time to give up biking.
12 miles of gravel track along Kielder Forest Drive, then 20 miles or so along mostly narrow, twisty single track behind the Otterburn ranges. Suicidal sheep add to the interest. Reward yourself with a pint at the Rose & Thistle, Alwinton.
Quiet B roads, stunning Borders moorland scenery.
Route 1 if it's raining hard
I live in N/Shields. Get yourself to Warkworth, at the end of this route you can either go home or blast on to Kielder etc!!
Not so direct route home after work to blow away the cobwebs.
Nice return route home after busy day.
A deliberate attempt to travel cross-country East-West avoiding major roads. The section between Elvanfoot and Newton Stewart (A702/712) is glorious. The added bonus at the end of the trip is lunch at Streatery, Sandhead (http://www.streatery82.co.uk/).
A much more interesting route from Morpeth to Ashington. Done either direction at the start and/or end of working day makes life more tolerable...
