Event Overview

The Wooler Wheel 160 (WW160) is an extended version of the Wooler Wheel 100 (WW100) cycle challenge which was inaugurated on 6 October 2012. WW160 is 163.2km (101.4miles) long with a total ascent of 2432m (7,982feet) - equivalent to climbing three Cheviots stacked on top of each other.

From near the southern tip of WW100 at East Lilburn, WW160 trends south westerly, crossing the A697 to Roddam and then follows the boundary of the National Park into the majestic landscape of the Breamish Valley, rich with prehistoric earthworks, to Ingram. After crossing the river at Brandon via a hair-raising footbridge, the route follows a big loop in Coquetdale via Alnham and enters the National Park at Alwinton. Then it's on to Harbottle, Thropton, Whittingham and Eglingham to rejoin the route of the WW100 near Old Bewick. The changing views of the Simonside Hills as the route traverses Coquetdale are magnificent, but save your awe for the northern outlook from Cartington Hill towards Hedgehope, Cheviot and the border ridge - a view on a par with those from the top of Lyham Bank.

Start training now. The extension is hard in its own right with three severe uphill sections including the long steep climb up Cartington Hill. Then you will still be faced with the treats of the WW100 - Lyham Bank, Thornington Bank and the climb up to Flodden Edge. You will appreciate the ice-creams at Doddington Dairy even more.

The final advice from the Routemaster - "Don't attempt this route - unless you enjoy pain. Expect to fail".
