The Great North MTB Trail
Ted has been co-opted by Cycling UK to support its vision to create a continuous high quality off-road trail inevitably with linking sections on quiet minor roads where absolutely necessary. A good part of the proposed alignment has been researched.
A small team of knowledgeable experienced trail enthusiasts have been enlisted to help with the process. The interim route will be cheap and cheerful whilst ridability and memorable locations are key considerations. Navigation is likely to be by GPS until such times as the route is mapped and waymarked.
Ted’s role is to coordinate Kirkby Stephen to the Border at Kielder with a link to Newcastleton working closely with all on route partners.
The plan is to launch this route concept between the south end of the Pennine Bridleway and Cape Wrath in August 2019.
