235 Miles Start Richmond, North Yorks, End Richmond North Yorks

This route is a figure of 8 centred on the market town of Alston on the banks of the River Tyne near the source of the south tributary. There a mixture of small slower roads and fluent sport roads across this stunning and dramatic landscape.

Historical connections abound along the B6318 which follows the path of Hadrian’s Wall. The A686 and A689 are faster roads but care still needs to be taken as there are some sharp ascents and descents on the routes.
