We've written about a number of cycle routes across the UK, and what we've realised is that so many of the best routes you can tackle in the UK are in the North of England. We love routes like the Hadrian's Cycleway and the C2C, but the Sandstone Way might be our favourite of the lot. It is simple and straightforward, but takes you through and past some of the most underrated areas in this part of the country, with Hexham being the perfect place to end your trip.
We wanted to produce a guide about this route for anyone looking to tackle it in 2022/23, with a breakdown of what to see along the route and things to know before setting off. Let's get into the guide:

What sections are there?
