Northumberland has to be the last truly wild and unspoilt part of England(?). I have once again drawn on my knowledge of the area to suggest it as this year’s cycling holiday offering. Chris and I produced a big walking show up here some year’s ago … we spent many an hour travelling up and down ‘The Great North Road’ to our base at Alnwick undertaking our reconnoitre duties! I have also enjoyed a couple of family holidays here so I know what beautiful coastal riches it has. My third (and extremely happy) recollection is watching the RAC Lombard Rally in the massive Keilder Forest in pitch blackness … I always promised myself a return.
