Hadrians Challenge - 130 miles

 15th/16th September 2012

For three years running, in September 2009, 2010 and 2011, we have organized an event along Hadrian's Cycleway which starts at Maryport and in the main follows the line of Hadrian's Wall, the world heritage site.

Riders assemble at the Rye Hill site of Newcastle College, off Scotswood Road, Newcastle-upon-Tyne very early on the Saturday morning. Buses take everyone plus bikes and baggage from Newcastle to Maryport in time for a start about 9 am. The route, almost all on minor roads passes through Silloth, Carlisle, Brampton and Haltwhistle to the first night's stop either at Once Brewed Youth Hostel or a the nearby Winshields campsite with bunkhouse. The second day follows the Tyne valley  via  Hexham, Corbridge  to finish at  the dramatic Newcastle  Quayside. 

For more information on the route, go to www.cycle-routes.org/hadriancycleway.

Price 75 includes transport for self, cycle and baggage, use of campsite or bunkhouse. Alternatively, you may arrange your own accommodation at nearby YHA or hotel at own expense. See you there!
