Overview

A guidebook to cycling in SE Scotland and NE England in the Northumberland National Park and the Southern Uplands. The Scottish Borders and Northumberland rank among the finest and most scenic parts of Britain, and this guide brings you detailed maps and descriptions of 40 original cycle routes in the area, varying in length from 15 to well over 40 miles. Most have off-road sections, but there is a wide variety, and if you enjoy cycling then you should be able to find something here to suit your tastes. Some of the routes are content to wander along leafy lanes and through quiet villages, while others are more demanding and will take you to wild and remote hills and mountains. The coastline varies from craggy cliffs, like those found at St Abbs Head, to the miles of golden sand that are Druridge Bay. Inland, the coastal plains give way to upland areas such as the Lammermuirs, the Southern Uplands, the Cheviots and the Pennines. In the Northumberland Park you can often cycle all day and seldom see a soul. The Southern Uplands has its own unique blend of both isolation and charm in equal measure.

Meet the Author

John Brewer has lived and worked in the Scottish Borders for over 20 years. He has a passion for mountains and remote places, and has walked and climbed in many of the major European ranges and also in North Africa and the Canadian Rockies and Pacific Northwest of the USA. Seeing the potential of modern mountain bikes to access more remote places and efficiently over long distances, John created the www.bikeroutes.org.uk website, in which he sets out to describe and map cycle routes in southeast Scotland and northeast England. The routes range from the more leisurely to the more demanding, and, in fact, this guide grew out of his search for more offbeat trails in the area.
