Hadrians Cycleway is approximately 174 miles long along national cycle route 72.
Travelling east from just outside Bowness-on-Solway the route takes you along the entire length of Hadrian's Wall.
The route is fairly flat along quiet countryside roads but you will encounter a few hills approximately half way into the journey.
Hadrian's wall was built (work began AD122) as a defensive fortification in Roman Britain during the rule of Emperor Hadrian
The wall starts on the west coast of England just west of Bowness-on-Solway and runs in an easterly direction to Segedunum at Wallsend on the east coast of England.
Along with Vindolanda it's one of the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England.
