The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.

Pennine Cycleway (National Cycle Network route 68)

The Pennine Cycleway forms route 68 of the National Cycle Network. It stretches for 265 miles, linking Derby with Berwick-upon-Tweed. It passes through three National Parks - the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland - and crosses briefly into Scotland as it approaches Berwick upon Tweed. The route takes in a number of market towns, including Ashbourne, Buxton, Holmfirth, Hebden Bridge, Appleby and Alston.
