​Hadrian's Cycleway

​National Cycle Network Route 72, passes through Hexham.

The 160 mile (256 kilometres) cycling route stretches the length of the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site linking Ravenglass on the Cumbrian coast to Tynemouth near Newcastle.

Most of it follows well-surfaced gravel cycle paths, tarmac cycle paths and quiet minor roads. There are no difficult off-road sections, but there are a few steep, short hills in the central section (up to 150m height climb).
