The North Pennines abounds in two-wheeled excitement and adventure! If your passion is moorland tracks beneath your wheels then look no further! Alternatively if road routes are more your style - the AONB has quiet country roads a plenty!   

The area has some of the country's best cycling. Quiet country roads, a range of traffic-free routes, unequalled scenery and a wide choice of places to stay make it a great destination!

The C2C, Pennine Cycleway and Walney to Wear (and Whitby) National Cycle Routes all pass through the North Pennines, along with the North Pennines own Wheels to the Wild Cycle Route.

Visit the Explore North Pennines portal to discover the amazing range of activities available across the AONB. At the heart of this site is an interactive map which will allow you to search by activity, interest and location.
