Use modern marvels to explore ancient history with the Hadrian’s Wall Cycle Scheme.
Who needs a chariot? Hire a power assisted ‘electric’ bike from the Hadrian’s Wall Cycle Scheme and covering the miles between forts will be easy. Set off from Maryport and explore the Solway Coast AONB and the coastal defences, or Carlisle for routes up to Hadrian’s Wall and beyond.
The power assisted bikes work in exactly same way as an ordinary cycle, but the battery provides an all-important boost, whether you need to catch up with the kids or conquer a mighty hill. If you think that’s cheating, normal cycles are also available as well as children’s bikes.
Lots of businesses in Hadrian’s Wall Country are ‘cyclist friendly’ and will provide a safe place to lock up your bike, and even give the battery a bit of a charge while you refuel with a tasty treat, or just take a break at one of the regions’ brilliant attractions.
