"On March 17th. 2020 I set off on a 5-day bike ride with my brother, from Settle, in North Yorkshire, to Berwick-upon-Tweed, on the border of England and Scotland. We followed the Sustrans Route 68 cycleway which was a journey of 210 miles and involved climbing 13,000 feet in total, all on a relatively new Juicy Classic.
My family lives in and around Berwick-upon-Tweed, my mother lives in a home there so I travel to this part of the country about every two months. Crazily I’d often thought of cycling from my front door in Glossop. After looking at having to possibly navigate major cities such as Huddersfield and Leeds I discovered the Sustrans cycle route 68. This fabulous ride takes you through some of the most outstanding and least populated areas of England. Which was a good thing because COVID-19 was rapidly becoming the box in which every activity was taking place.
So, on March 17th. 2020, my brother and I left Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe in Settle (reputedly the oldest cafe in the country) and started pedalling for the next 5 days. Before we left I’d thought the route looked good but it surpassed all my expectations. Virtually traffic free and totally spectacular the whole thing was a fabulous adventure.
Route 68 took us through the western region of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to Appleby-in-Westmorland and the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB). We then picked up the River South Tyne to Haltwhistle where we saw some of the most complete sections of Hadrian’s Wall before entering Kielder Forest. From here we cycled across Northumberland National Park to the Northumberland coast, another AONB. Thank god for padded shorts and the Classic’s comfy saddle!
I never realised that the Juicy Classic could also handle some off-road cycling-but it did. When we began to ride through Kielder Forest we soon realised that about 5 miles of the track had been washed away by the previous flooding, which meant we had to ride through deep trenches of mud, stopping every five minutes to haul the bike through the next large and deep puddle. With the panniers, extra bags, and battery it was very heavy!
In terms of battery life I have a 60-mile battery, so reckoned, with the panniers and extra bags I’d get about 40 miles a day. I also charged the battery whenever we stopped for lunch.
The whole five days were absolutely amazing but if I had to single out a ‘best’ day it would be when we cycled from Gamblesby to Bellingham, a distance of around 45 miles. It was such a variable part of the route; from cycling alongside the beautiful banks of the River South Tyne, following the disused railway track of the South Tyne Way and over the Lambley Viaduct, unexpectedly coming across part of Hadrian’s Wall and crossing through Kielder Forest.
We reached Berwick-upon-Tweed on Saturday 21st. March and celebrated on a cold day by the sea.
On Monday 23rd. March I travelled on a near-empty train, through the deserted stations of York, Leeds, and Huddersfield, back to Glossop. That same evening Boris Johnson put the country in lockdown."

To celebrate, Nick and I thought we’d find a Devon pub within cycling distance and have a nice Sunday roast lunch out for a change. There are some lovely, quaint little villages surrounding Devon’s capital, Exeter, where we live; some we know well, others we are not so familiar with. We picked a pub known for its famous carvery, in the Exe Valley, described on the pub’s website as being 5 miles from Exeter, but being vaguely familiar with some of these villages, I had an inkling it could be further. We set off on my French Blue Classic Click and Nick ‘borrowed’ one of his new fleet bikes, a Classic Sport in Heath. Up until a week ago, Nick had been using his electrically converted Giant bike for commuting to work and riding up to town at the weekends. Using the excuse that he needed to ‘test drive’ the Classic Sport, we spent last weekend on a marketing drive, leaflet dropping to lots of local places that attract visitors. Needless to say, Nick felt the difference between the Juicy and his old converted Giant and now looks for any opportunity to hop aboard!!
I know Alison definitely gets a lot of out of the throttle accessory. She appreciates the help setting off. And I know she chose the step through frame for the convenience.
We're also fans the being able to choose the level of assistance. It’s very useful when travelling as a group because we can easily keep to a ‘group speed’. I’m always tweaking the assistance levels to get the most out of the battery. It helps me to get as far as possible.
Firstly, I rode from home to the station at Manchester Airport and there bought a ticket to Sowerby Bridge.
I then followed the Calder Valley leading to Haworth Youth Hostel via the canal tow path into Hebden Bridge then over the moors passing Wuthering Heights.
I stayed at the Youth Hostel and next day rode to Leeds, through early morning mist high up then again along the canal path of the Leeds to Liverpool canal route 66.
I stayed at my daughters and in the morning picked up the Trans Pennine Trail starting at the Calder Navigation in Leeds, route 67 and later following the now derelict Barnsley canal and finally finishing in Barnsley where I caught a train back to Manchester Airport via Sheffield and cycled the 5 miles home making a total of 38 miles that day with no fear of my battery running out since I have the 15 amp hour!
The weather was crisp and clear as we rode the back roads through Harpur Hill, then Earl Sterndale and took the track that leads from the side of High Wheeldon to the Royal Oak.
After a hearty and delicious lunch by a roaring fire we were ready to head back. We chose to go along the lanes towards Grin Low and came back into Buxton down the A53 with the winter sunlight fading over the hills.
We ended up at the Royal Oak Hurdlow, where the food was fantastic and the log fire welcomed us on a cold but glorious day.
Tiny 5' 2" Sarah tried hard to tidy 6' 6" Roy for the camera, as he tried out a Classic Grande.
Always tidy Leigh never-the-less keeps out of reach of Sarah's determined styling - Roy you look great!
Eric sent us this account of what sounds like a perfect trip. Eric has a Sport from 2012 with a standard battery and told us about this trip in June 2014. We last saw Eric in November 2013 when he popped by for a service and to let us know how his bike was performing. Maybe you'll bump into him around Anglesey.
The Juicy Bike on the left is resting with a friend on the way from Dolgellau down the Mawddach Estuary to Barmouth.
The Cycle Path is traffic free with an excellent Pub serving Morning Coffee (and a refreshing pint on the return journey) a few miles after leaving the car park just outside Dolgellau.
The cycle path crosses the estuary alongside the Railway on the mile long wooden bridge.
The views are spectacular and a seafood lunch sitting in the sun outside the cafe in Barmouth opposite the harbour is excellent.
A full days return journey on the Juicy bike with power to spare!
You can find more information about this area at this Tripadvisor link. Thanks Eric!
But we're just so happy to hear about this fabulous trip! Read Janet's account below, then plan your own...
John is 77 and I am 65. We bought Juicy Classic Click bikes in April. John has a 16 amp battery as after 3 replacement hips (yes 3!) and with a new knee pending he doesn't want to pedal much. I like to pedal but not to sweat over it and have a 10 amp battery. John wins the downhills and I win the uphills. We have a 2.5 litre VW campervan with one of those excellent but horribly expensive Thule bike racks that fits on the towball. We were away 26 nights May/June staying mainly in ACSI low season campsites. We were motivated by the new ferry route that opened this year – Poole to Gijon. (Gijon – pronounced Xixon - Gheehon - is about 176 km west of Santander) the new route cost about £200 less than its traditional competitor so we decided to go for it. Our Juicy bikes took on the hills and the cobbled roads with ease, the only adjustment needed was to tighten up the bike stands.
We're grateful to Glenis who sent us these pictures reminding us of where we can find a perfect day out, only a few miles from our front door.
Where do I start to tell you how much fun I've had with my Juicy Bike? I LOVE IT! It goes everywhere with us on the back of our motor home.
The pictures were taken on the Middleton Way, a perfect day out to just ride and let the cares of the world be forgotten about.
The best money we've ever spent was buying my Juicy Classic Bike.
Everywhere we go people comment on what a good looking bike it is and we've recommended the bike to so many people.
Many, many thanks.
You are more than welcome Glenis and thank you for sharing these great pictures! It's wonderful to hear about your trips on a Juicy Bike.
We're grateful to Tina who sent us this picture - simply unachievable without her trusty Juicy Bike! (We're a little worried about you Tina... )
Cycling through the back lanes to Bideford, this is the view you get before dropping down to the town. Having a Juicy Bike makes the climb up to this view easy peasy. I live in a beautiful part of the country and can explore it more easily on the Juicy Bike.
Well... um, we like cows too Tina. Thanks!
