Tynedale

Alston, Cumbria, England

Hilly - New

Starting at Alston in Cumbria, the UK’s highest market town high in the Pennine Hills, we head through Tynedale and the River South Tyne (a tributary to the famous River Tyne) and over Alston Moor. After a steep climb over Downgang Hush and Flinty fell, we drop sharply to Nenthead only to continue up onto the beautiful Coalcleaugh Moor and into Northumberland with a stunning and long descent into West Allendale. It is here where we help Mrs Goggins round in her sheep although there is one that does not want to listen, try telling it to go right (their destination) and see if it will listen to you… We end this amazing ride at Bearsbridge … Enjoy!
