Tour of Britain

Were you inspired by the Tour of Britain passing through Alnwick? Are you looking for an excuse to get your bike out of the garage, and go for a ride?

You might have noticed the announcement last week that £20 million will be invested in upgrades to the National Cycle Network. <here>. However, the nearest of the listed projects is more than 100 miles from Alnwick. We can suggest some routes, but you should probably allow a day or two to get there. (see table below)

On the other hand you might prefer to look into some of the excellent cycling closer to home. https://www.visitnorthumberland.com/cycling and https://www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk/things-to-do/get-active-outdoors/cycling/
