  • Direction: Hadrian's Cycleway, signed as National Route 72, can be cycled in either direction, though it is normally cycled west to east.
  • Road Type: The route runs mainly on country lanes and quiet roads, interspersed with sections of traffic-free path, promenade and riverside path. As most of the route is either on minor roads or well surfaced off-road tracks most bikes are suitable. We would recommend all tyres apart from from full slick or racing bike tyres.
  • Inclines: The coastal sections at either end of the route are relatively flat, but there are a few steep, short hills in the central section.
  • Time needed: Most people are able to complete the route in 3 days, but for those wanting to stop at the numerous attractions along the way it is likely to take 4-5 days.
