The Route

Get ready for an unforgettable 100 mile adventure on completely closed roads.

Starting in the heart of historic Durham City, in the shadow of the Durham Cathedral and Castle UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vélo North 100 mile route will take you on a truly breathtaking journey through the county of Durham.

Passing through the Durham Dales and rugged North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the sweeping, panoramic views will take your breath away as you tick off the miles on route to the finish line in Durham City centre.

With multiple climbs throughout the route, Vélo North will be a challenging day in the saddle, but the dramatic scenery, camaraderie with fellow riders and support from the locals will make for a hugely enjoyable day of cycling.

Vélo North is set to be without doubt one of the UK’s most beautiful cycling events and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself on Sunday September 1.

Please note, we will release the detailed, interactive route map complete with KML & GPX files in the coming months.
