Cycling In Northumberland
If bicycles had been invented centuries earlier, surely the clever Romans would have made good use of them for moving between the widely spread forts, milecastles, turrets, towns and villages that made up this northern frontier of the Roman Empire.
Now it's not only Roman sites that are here for you to discover by bicycle, but a diverse range of other historic and modern attractions all set amidst some of Britain's most stunning and varied natural scenery.
To pedal through this landscape in a leisurely but active way makes the experience all the more memorable.
