The Sandstone Way is a new 120 miles / 192km (approx.) mountain biking route between Berwick upon Tweed and Hexham along the Sandstone Ridge in North Northumberland linking numerous sandstone features, crags and outcrops. The route traverses through an amazing ever-changing landscape which is rich in history, geological features and iconic scenery.
The Sandstone Way has been designed for mountain bikers and being braided for selected sections, will appeal to all abilities. It uses a mix of existing rights of way of varies surfaces and widths interlinked by the minimum amount of quiet roads possible.
For every entry we have for the event we also make a donation to the Sandstone Way Project to help maintain the up keep of the route and way marking.
