The four routes are designed as a series of circular loops and one figure-of-eight off-road trail all starting from Alston. They also link to the Sustrans C2C Cycle Route.
There are three other pdf downloads in this series highlighting routes starting from Stanhope, Allendale and Middleton-in-Teesdale.
Route 1 is very tough due to numerous steep hills, however the terrain in the North Pennines means that it is impossible to avoid some steep climbs and so few routes are easy. There are off-road sections on some of the routes – routes 3 and 4 are only suitable for fit off-road cyclists. The routes are designed for reasonably fit people who are used to cycling.
