Cheviot Hills - TRAIL

Cheviot Hills - Trail, Wooler, Alwinton near Rothbury, Northumberland, United Kingdom

All kinds of riding but characterised by grassy tracks on open moorland. Some hefty climbing in the Cheviots but with some fantastic views and fun downhills (of the XC persuasion) as reward. Can be harsh in poor weather and soft going in the winter.

This is a nice taster of some of the riding you can do in the areas, the climb out of Alwinton on Clennell st. will get you warmed up quickly - its also great to come down if you come the other way but don't hit the hidden gate! The ride up onto the border ridge is a slog whichever way you go and has some hard going bits if the ground is soft. The slabs laid along the route of the pennine way cross a boggy patch are something different, be grateful for suspension because it was tough on the arms in the old rigid fork days... From Windy Gyle to the street is a great track which holds up well in the wet and has some ace views. The descent down the street has a great start and a bit of a flat and climb in the middle and ends on a cracking steep track to the end. This has some reasonably technical bits but nothing too tricky but the climbs are tough so its for the reasonably fit only

To get a feel for the area start from Alwinton and head north along Clennell Street to the foot of Hazely Law. Ride up to the border ridge and along the stone slab path to Windy Gyle. Continue west along the ridge and then drop down on 'The Street' from Black Braes to the valley bottom and back to Alwinton along the road.
