Further information

The Sandstone Way was conceived in early 2010 and took 5 years to bring to readiness as a waymarked, mapped and promoted route for mountain bikes. The Sandstone Way is now a reality due to teamwork and a lot of freely given time and input. Formed in 2009, Tyne Valley MTB club has played a leading role in the implementation process.

Once created, cycle routes don’t look after themselves. The intention was always to manage every aspect of the Sandstone Way experience sustainably though user payback, income from map sales and donations.

Thank you for your donation.

    What an incredible route. Rode it N-S over 3 days Fr-Sun this weekend. Must have took some work to thread this route together which really makes the most of everything Northumberland has to offer. Some memorable moments and incredible views. That descent down to Rothbury from Snitter…sublime. Thanks to all those involved in the creation of this route – I’d recommend it to anyone.
