WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY! The inaugural WW160 took place May 11th 2013 in somewhat challenging weather but did that put the entrants off? Not a bit of it. The smiles of people arriving back at the finish line said it all, it turned out to be a bit more of a challenge for some but all were unanimous in their enjoyment of the day. A few e-mails from the many received after the event have been posted here -
I took part in the 100 KM ride on Saturday and was so impressed by the organisation and by the good natured supportive marshalls and food station helpers that I feel I should write and thank you all. I’ll be back in October.
My thanks to you and your team for organising such a fantastic event. Seamless organisation, clear route signing, friendly and helpful marshals and helpers, fantastic route. This is unquestionably the best sportive I have ever undertaken. Kind regards

Why a Cyclosportive in North Northumberland? No industry and sparse population equate to very light motor traffic and this, coupled with it’s scenic landscape and ancient heritage, makes the area a unique destination for safe, exhilarating and challenging cycling.
Perhaps the photographs will help give you an idea of the area. The diversity of scenery in North Northumberland is truly wonderful – these were taken on a beautiful day in early spring along the route.
Here you see the massif that is The Cheviot, snow crowned at this time of year and dominating.You will see it from all sorts of angles on the route, sometimes cycling away from and sometimes with it ahead.
This is only a few miles out of Wooler.
This one looks over the coast to Holy Island – a challenging climb to get to this point!
The Wooler Wheel Challenges are a natural progression from The Wooler Cycle Hub which was set up in 2010 and has 7 way marked cycle routes of varying lengths and grades which radiate out from the attractive and bustling market town of Wooler, Gateway to The Cheviots and The Northumberland National Park. The routes take you through some 8,000 years of history within beautiful Glendale, through heather moorland with soaring rocky tors, past isolated farmsteads, over fertile agricultural plains with sweeping coastal views and through pretty villages – the diversity of scenery in North Northumberland is one of it’s many charms and a cycle ride the best way to appreciate. The routes are supported by a wonderful map sold throughout Wooler or you can download them from the web site. http://www.wooler.org.uk/visitor/?sid=1106
