Today follow National Cycle Route 72 and the Penine Cycleway from Brampton to the tiny village of Once Brewed near the iconic Sycamore Gap.
Distance 35.4 km
Leave Brampton behind and cycle north passing Banks and Birdoswald where you'll see some well-preserved sections of Hadrian’s Wall. A long descent into Haltwhistle follows before coming off the cycleway at the summit of Smith's Shield. Tonight sample a local beer in Once Brewed at the Twice Brewed Inn!
It is well worth diverting from the main route at Banks and Birdoswald to visit well-preserved sections of the wall.
