Holiday Information

This place to place road cycling weekend in the UK is a classic. We’ve been trying to keep it all to ourselves but the secret is out - Northumberland is simply a brilliant area to explore on your bike!
Our weekend begins on the banks of the River Tyne, just a stone’s throw from Newcastle’s vibrant city centre. Once on the bikes it isn’t long before we’re deep into the North East’s finest countryside and exploring England’s least populated county. Having ridden through some of the region’s remotest towns and villages we will spend our second evening in Rothbury, situated just outside the stunning Northumberland National Park. Our second day on the bikes features highlights of the route ridden by the country’s top pro riders in the annual Beaumont Trophy, eventually leading us back to Newcastle via sections of the ancient Military Road and passing Hadrian's Wall.
This is a great road cycling weekend for blowing away the cobwebs and a natural progression for anyone who's enjoyed one of our easier UK weekends; the perfect refreshing break in a truly picturesque, remote and history laden slice of England.
Each of our road weekends are kept specifically small at between 6 to 14 riders, enabling us to cater for different fitness and riding experience levels within the group. If you don't have a bike (or simply don't fancy washing it at the end of the weekend!), then we've got a great selection of bikes for hire. We'll even put on your own special weekend if there is a group of you and our dates just don't fit!
