Riding the A689 Wolsingham to Killhope Cross

One of the north east’s most popular routes, used by thousands of bikers every year, the A689 is notorious for its tight bends and hidden junctions as well as the odd sheep and pheasant!

See why so many of us love the A689 but beware of the hazards along the way.
