Follow the iconic ancient Roman monument from Coast to Coast on an epic journey across England.
Distance: The full National Route is 174 miles and includes a Cumbrian coastal section. Our route is 100 miles cross country from coast to coast.
Starting in Bowness on Solway, the route combines exceptional views, quaint villages, rewarding climbs and their associated descents! Plus of course the great historic landmark of Hadrian’s Wall itself, the 122AD Roman remains.
Great northern English landscapes combine with a great northern welcome. Enjoy the sense of achievement of a challenging (but not too extreme) cycle, and in particular enjoy the welcome and the cold beers as you stop in local inns and cafes to toast your progress!
Keen cyclists can take on the challenge of a coast to coast in a shorter time, but the route appeals to a wide variety of cyclists of all level, including mixed ability groups and families looking for a trip with a difference.
Macs Bike offer itineraries of 3 or 4 cycling days but can tailor trips to suit, including accommodation in welcoming cycle-friendly hotels and B&Bs, plus daily baggage transfer to lighten the load and complete organisation including all the maps, route-notes and guidebooks you’ll need to complete the journey. We also include a transfer from Newcastle to the start of the cycle in Bowness (including bike and luggage transfers), to help planning your arrival and departure easier.
