This Northumberland Cycling Adventures Map Guide has been developed to assist recreational cyclists in planning trips. The routes are primarily on road and, in most cases, do not contain special treatment for cyclists, such as bike lanes. Where special treatments for cyclists are provided, cyclists must use these roads with the same caution they would use when riding on similar roads that do not have such treatment. The routes are intended for use by experienced cyclists and should be evaluated by each individual cyclist based on level of experience, comfort level in cycling in mixed traffic, weather conditions, time of day, posted speed, changing road grades and any road obstacles or conditions, whether temporary or permanent, such as construction or potholes. Experienced cyclists are considered to be those who have completed the CAN-BIKE level 2 course, or equivalent. The Municipality is not responsible for any unseen offenses committed by third parties, which may cause a hazard to cyclists.

This Northumberland Cycling Adventures Map Guide has been developed to assist recreational cyclists in planning trips. The routes are primarily on road and, in most cases, do not contain special treatment for cyclists, such as bike lanes. Where special treatments for cyclists are provided, cyclists must use these roads with the same caution they would use when riding on similar roads that do not have such treatment. The routes are intended for use by experienced cyclists and should be evaluated by each individual cyclist based on level of experience, comfort level in cycling in mixed traffic, weather conditions, time of day, posted speed, changing road grades and any road obstacles or conditions, whether temporary or permanent, such as construction or potholes. Experienced cyclists are considered to be those who have completed the CAN-BIKE level 2 course, or equivalent. The Municipality is not responsible for any unseen offenses committed by third parties, which may cause a hazard to cyclists.
