Come and join us on this road route following quiet country lanes taking in some amazing sights along the way. Starting in Ponteland, the route passes by Kirkley Hall (Northumberland College) which features an obelisk commemorating the ascension of William and Mary in 1689. Next up is the scenic Bolam Lake, a popular local attraction before reaching the midpoint of the ride Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the unconventional Trevelyan family and now looked after by the National Trust. Here we will have time for a break and a brew before making our way back to Ponteland. For more information on Wallington Hall National Trust property please click on the link below. Join us on some amazing rides, created in association with our friends at the National Trust. Make the most of some beautiful countryside, and great facilities for cyclists. You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins, but you’ll need to know your way around a bike and be fairly fit to take part in our Challenging rides. If you’re comfortable riding with other people and fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you. They start at around twenty miles long, and are paced at between 11 and 12 miles an hour.  ©National Trust
