Beyond Northumberland Sportive 2022

Next Race: 02/07/2022

Hexham racecourse

Northumberland’s rugged beauty is perfect for a sportive with a varied scenery along the route.

Parts of the ride will follow the route of Hadrian’s Wall, the route darts back and forth from the wall, preferring quiet roads to historical fidelity, but if anything, that makes it more enjoyably varied.

All done with the beauty of the Northumbrian wilds.
