The middle of the road in Haltwhistle? Probably not: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centre_points_of_the_United_Kingdom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_of_the_Road_(song)

New gate heading towards Stannington on cycle path. Bit fiddly when on bike but nicer than going up side of A1.

Looking north from ncr1 on its clifftop approach to Berwick upon Tweed. The East Coast Main Line is adjacent to the viewer at this point, so passengers on the line's express trains could also enjoy this view, albeit more briefly. https:/ ... [more]

Bridge by shallow ford on route 68 (muddy and gravely)

Bicycle Parking and Hire At Alnmouth Railway Station

George Stephenson's Cottage - Teas available

Off road approach to hallington reservoir

Sustrans Rowe milepost on NCN72 Hadrian's Cycle Way

Looking South from the main road

Ramp down from A189 cycle path (see #46090), with painted section and barrier at bottom

Route sign on new route of NCN 1 in Blyth, and a "No Entry except cycles" on exit from filling station allowing cyclists to reach closed off road beyond.

Sections of unnecessary cycle lanes on dead-end road, plus incorrect Cycles Only sign

Ramps up from the seafront promenade

"No vehicles except for loading" - cycles banned from the road to the cycle parking (behind bandstand)

Concrete blocks closing road with small but cyclable gap left in between, on new route of NCN1 in Blyth

Muddy surface on this section of The Avenue Waggonway

Reasonable quality path at end of The Avenue Waggonway

Segregated cycle track on main road through Seaton Sluice village, at point where NCN 1 takes a detour along the coast road.

Segregated cycle track on main road through Seaton Sluice village, obstructed by motorist parked on cycle track next to free car parking layby. Cycle track could do with some Diagram 1057 symbols at layby.

Segregated cycle track on main road through Seaton Sluice village, at bus stop

Segregated cycle track on main road through Seaton Sluice village

Sudden end to segregated section of cycle track on The Avenue at bus stop. From here it is a narrow shared-use footway into Seaton Sluice.

Barrier across entrance to off-road path on NCN1 (see also #46118). Turn left and cross road here to go to The Avenue cycle track (see #46120).

Barrier at end of off-road section of NCN1 (see also #46119)

Wheel-twister cycle parking outside public toilets next to NCN1

Trenching work for electric car charging points has not been finished off, leaving broken surface across NCN1. None of the vehicles parked in these bays was electric in any case.

Are cyclists welcome in the park or not?

Cycle lanes on dead-end road with traffic calming

Barrier across closed-off old road, with gaps at side that require bumping kerbs to get through

Cycle path crossing road on edge of Newbiggin. Path runs as far as edge of built-up area, including past the road to the seafront.

Underpass beneath A189 connecting North Seaton and Newbiggin, and grade-separated junction with NCN1

Overgrown section of NCN1 path next to A189

Cycle path alongside A189, with odd painted sections, and slip allowing cyclists crazy enough to be on the main carriageway to join the cycle path!

Barter Books - one of the largest second hand bookshops in the UK - built inside the old Alnwick Railway Station. http://www.barterbooks.co.uk/

Some basic cycle parking next to Alnwick Castle Gardens.

Some kind of art, a golfer on a bike.

Vindolanda from NCN72

The entrance to Keelman's Way (NCN141) is tucked away at the corner of the car park for Wylam train station.

Cycle stands and lockers (at rear) at Morpeth station

A long quiet way round to Morpeth station - closed to motor vehicles but open to cyclists

Cycleable route up to the rear entry to Morpeth station (where you'll have to carry your bike up to the platform, however)

Riverside route, Morpeth

Chantry Bridge (on the site of Morpeth's Old Bridge), from Telford's New Bridge - there is step-free access too.

Riverside route leaving Carlisle Park, Morpeth

Better access required from the road to the riverside route, Morpeth

Start of Morpeth riverside route

Link to the Lancaster Park area of Morpeth

Path from Morpeth to Mitford (passing under the A1), which could easily be adapted as a shared-use cycle path.

Aha! three cycle stands well hidden behind the ticket shed at Wallington (National Trust)

The car park at Wallington (National Trust) - a huge amount of space for the disabled, nothing visible for cycles

Entry to Cambo - a charming National Trust village well worth cycling through.

Level access from car park to riverside route from Rothbury

Footpath only from here to Thropton - it was intended to build a cycleway from Rothbury, but the money ran out halfway.

Cycle rack at the National Trust's Cragside estate - not near anything in particular.

It would be great if cyclists could enter the National Trust's Cragside estate here, rather than slogging up the hill from Rothbury.

Start of former railway in industrial estate, Rothbury - dropped kerbs etc needed.

Footbridge, Rothbury - open for cycling but probably best to wheel your bike across.

Riverside cycle path and bridge, Rothbury

Tomlinson's Café-Bunkhouse, Rothbury, very cycle-friendly - note the ramp (also wheelchair access to the café)

riverside path west from Prudhoe

Hadrian's Cycleway looping through a car park and under the Prudhoe bridge

It would make sense for cycling to be allowed on the footbridge alongside the Prudhoe bridge

Hadrian's Cycleway crosses the Tyne on the very narrow Prudhoe bridge - or you can wheel your bike across the footbridge.
