A excellent way of exploring Weardale is by bike. This publication highlights four routes of various lengths that can be started from the Durham Dales Centre in Stanhope.
The four routes, starting from the Durham Dales Centre in Stanhope and are designed as a series of loops and one figure-of-eight off-road trail radiating from the Centre. The routes link to the Sustrans C2C Cycle Route.
There are three other pdf downloads in this series highlighting routes starting from Alston, Allendale and Middleton-in-Teesdale.
Please note that the terrain in the North Pennines means that it is impossible to avoid some climbs. There are steep hills on some and moderate uphill sections on all of the routes. The routes are designed for reasonably fit people who are used to cycling.
