Sandstone Way Official Cycle Route Map

Between Berwick-upon-Tweed & Hexham


£7.99 
 

The Sandstone Way is a 120 mile mountain biking route between Berwick upon Tweed and Hexham that runs along the sandstone ridge in North Northumberland, linking numerous sandstone crags and outcrops. From one end of Northumberland to the other the Sandstone Way traverses an ever-changing landscape which is rich in history, geology and iconic scenery.

Both Hexham and Berwick upon Tweed are served by rail. Between these two towns, the route passes through numerous villages and small communities including Wooler, Rothbury and Bellingham. It has been designed to safely cross rivers, main roads and railways.

The Sandstone Way is designed for mountain bikers and as much of the route as possible is off-road. It will appeal to riders of all abilities and most will take 3 or 4 days to complete it. The 'fit and the fast' could possibly ride the route in 2 days but in all probability most would wish they had taken 3 days. Almost certainly a few mountain bikers will try to ride the whole route in a day!

The Sandstone Way uses suitable existing Public Rights of Way including an interesting mix of double-width dirt tracks, sections of singletrack, unsurfaced lanes and bridleways of all types as well as byways and little known Unclassified County Roads (UCRs). Inevitably, these lovely route types are linked with sections of quiet minor roads and surfaced country lanes.

The Sandstone Way is clearly waymarked with a distinctive green logo roundel. Ten optional loops are also offered to appeal to 'day riders' who wish to cycle back to their starting point or map-read their way along more challenging alternatives to the waymarked route.
