    have a look at the Virgin (formerly Northern Rock) Cyclone route. That seems well thought of.

    ooops, mountain bikes... wrong forum.

    Lots :)
    Chopwell - rideable in half an hour from Newcastle
    Natural riding in Northumberland - Rothbury is best.

    Then further afield you have
    North York Moors &Dalby
    Yorkshire Dales
    Glentress & Inners
    Lake District

    EDIT: I presume you meant Newcastle upon Tyne

    Rothbury is my local stomping ground and is only 45mins from Newcastle (in the van). Loads of great natural riding for all abilities and disciplines - its always quiet too. I'd be happy to point you in the right direction if you want.
    Society is like a stew. You have to stir things up now and again otherwise the scum will rise to the top.
