What you'll do

This is a great opportunity to patrol the northern frontier of the Roman Empire on an E-Mountain Bike with a National Park Ranger. You’ll start your journey from The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre and cycle a circular on-road and off-road route encompassing the most iconic section of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. The scenic tour offers outstanding views towards the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as Hadrian’s Wall itself, Northumberland National Park and across towards the Scottish Borders - ‘bandit country’ where Romans dared to march! As you traverse this ancient landscape, along quiet country lanes and byways, you will hear from the Ranger more about the area’s turbulent past, and how in more recent and peaceful times, sheep farming and forestry continue to shape the land today. This tour also includes the iconic viewpoint of Hadrian’s Wall from Steel Rigg, and ideal location to take that selfie and Instagram picture!

Duncan

I have an environmental degree and have been employed in the environmental sector for nearly 30 years, working for Northumberland National Park for the last 19 years and before that with Exmoor National Park for 3 years. My background experience is in habitat conservation, environmental education, heritage interpretation, access and recreational management, sustainable tourism & transport and marketing. The ebike tour is my own idea and combines my passion for cycling and heritage interpretation, and is centred on the most famous historic monument in northern England. I have led many differently themed guided walks and bike rides in the past and I am confident in engaging visitors from all backgrounds about the fascinating history of this varied and fascinating landscape.
