Cycle Routes

 

There are over 125km of nationally graded self guided Cycle Trails in Kielder Water and Forest Park. All the trails have been overhauled and re-waymarked.  Routes are given a grading according to their difficulty.  Learn about the National Trail Grading System.

There are also 5 circular routes in the North Tyne Valley, that start and finish in Bellingham.  They have been plotted by Northumberland National Park, and conisist of quiet country lanes and open moorland, and take in parts of the National Cycle Routes network.

      • Start/Finish: Typically Kielder, but other options available
      • Distance: 42km
      • Grade: Green

A very scenic multi user path which makes it’s way around the full shoreline of Kielder Water.

Unlike the other man made trails in the Park, the Lakeside Way can be ridden in either direction, with enough width to allow two way traffic for cyclists, horse riders and walkers.

Never far from the shore, the views are ever changing and give different aspects from the North and South sides.

If a full circuit sounds like too much, the trail can be accessed in several places along the South shore, making a shorter “there and back” ride quite possible.

As well as Kielder village, there are other “watering holes” at Leaplish and Tower Knowe.

Two of the latest additions to Kielder’s outdoor artworks, Silvas Capitalis (the 8mtr tall wooden head) and the Janus Chairs are situated along the North shore.
