Bradt's new cycling guide to Northumbria offers 21 routes covering County Durham, Tyne & Wear and Northumberland. Each ride includes comprehensive directions plus contextual features on history, wildlife and culture. Each links to OS Explorer maps (and, where relevant, National Cycle Network routes), while QR codes connect with downloadable GPX maps via the komoot app, enabling navigation by smartphone.

With a dedicated bike-hire section (so you have an alternative if your bicycle isn't suitable for a particular ride) and accommodation suggestions, this book is an indispensable travel companion for two-wheeled adventures. Northeast England is among the UK's most dramatic and unspoilt regions, boasting long, sandy beaches, upland moors and forests. Its history is rich too, with Celtic, Viking and Roman sites in this battleground for successive border wars between the English and Scots.

Majestic castles such as Bamburgh stand guard along its windswept coastline, while Holy Island's Lindisfarne Castle once provided a haven to Christianity's earliest missionaries and Alnwick Castle served as Hogwarts School in two Harry Potter films. Today, the region is becoming increasingly popular for cyclists, particularly off-road mountain biking, but is still a 'sleeping giant' for its potential. Collectively totalling 355 miles, rides range from 9-26 miles and are typically suitable for half-day outings.
