Pennine Cycleway

Pennine Cycleway

The Pennine Cycleway is a Sustrans-sponsored route from the English city of Derby to Berwick-upon-Tweed on the Scottish border. It is part of the National Cycle Network (NCN 68) and was opened in 2003. It has a total length of about 355 miles, and goes through the National Parks of the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland; about 80% is on quiet roads and the remainder on traffic-free routes.

It is not to be confused with the Pennine Bridleway, or the Pennine Way, which are National Trails.
