Watch again: Adventure on your doorstep - cycling the Great North Trail


In summer 2019 we launched the Great North Trail, an 800-mile off-road route from the Peak District to the north coast of Scotland through some of the most stunning landscapes in Scotland and northern England. On Saturday 13 June, as part of Bike Week 2020, we brought the route to life as a virtual event. You can watch back now to see some of the stunning scenery and find out just how we put together the epic long distance route.

The event takes you from one end of the trail to the other, exploring the huge variety of trails packed into Scotland and northern England: from rolling hills and dales to remote windswept moorland, crumbling castles to hidden waterfalls, swooping singletrack and old Roman roads and everything in between.

The route offers something for everyone, so whether it’s for an epic long-distance challenge, a weekend away, or a fantastic day out, find an adventure with us.

There was plenty discussion of what bike is best and also audience suggestions of where Cycling UK should go next with their long distance trail planning.
