Reivers Cycle Route Map
The long distance Reivers Cycle Routes are two intertwining signed / waymarked bi-directional 'coast to coast' cycle routes between the North Sea and the Irish Sea.
The original Reivers Cycle Route was created in 1998 eventually becoming NCN Route 10 with interlinking on road and off-road sections but this soon morphed into a one-size-fits-all route which never worked well. The regenerated re-launched Reivers Cycle Routes are two intertwining route options - one which is as much off-road as possible suitable for gravel and cross bikes, hybrids and mountain bikes and a version designed for capable road cyclists which is 100% on tarmac.
The routes are bi-directional and whilst this route shows the alignments in a westbound direction, both directions continuously reward the rider with fine views of the constantly changing terrain, provide many places of interest to pass by or call in and many lovely villages and quiet hamlets to cycle through or stay the night in. Most importantly, there is a supply of excellent on route or close-to-route refreshments stops.
