What to expect on a Saddle Skedaddle cycling holiday

It’s time to get on your saddle and explore the open road on a cycling tour through Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside.


Using the National Cycle Network, this cycling holiday with Saddle Skedaddle travels along the northern boundary of the Roman Empire, starting and finishing at either end of Hadrian’s Wall. This wonderful cycling break follows in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, allowing you to experience some of the rich heritage that Cumbria and Northumberland have to offer.

From cycling in open hill country, through peaceful river valleys and finishing at the North Sea at Tynemouth, the route passes through some of the most beautiful parts of England. You’ll also be able to stop-off at fascinating Roman sites along the route, including Birdoswald Fort, Walltown Quarry, Great Chesters Fort and Vindolanda.

After arriving in Newcastle you'll spend the first night in this vibrant city before being transferred to Bowness-on-Solway and the start of your ride which ends 100 miles later in Tynemouth, where you’ll be transferred back to Newcastle to make your way home.

This self-guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people and accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back-up are all included. With access to the Skedaddle App you'll be able to navigate the route with ease. Nothing could be simpler!

If you’re looking for a cycling holiday on quiet roads, traffic free paths and National Cycle Network routes - then Hadrian's Cycleway is the holiday for you! You can also do this route over 3 or 6 days of cycling, as well as a supported 3-day trip. For an even more challenging trip with longer daily distances, there’s also a 2-day version. If you're interested in doing this holiday with children, then check out the family version where kid's discounts may be available.
