HADRIAN'S WALL AND FOREST

Sidecar_Edit_Aug23_030.jpg

Available as a half day (3 hours) or full day experience (6+ hours)

Retrace thousands of years of history and touch the wall that marked the most north westerly point of the Roman Empire for more than 300 years! We're lucky enough to have one of Britain's biggest tourist attractions and an Unesco World Heritage site in our back garden.

Join us for a ride out to the edge of the Roman empire and discover Hadrian's Wall in all it's glory. We'll take the road less travelled too and arrive there via the Wark Forest. This little jaunt through a section of England's largest forest is incredibly scenic and racing along the unpaved forest tracks in a sidecar is so much fun!

HADRIAN'S WALL AND FOREST HALF DAY EXPERIENCE

£145pp / 3 hours / Minimum 2 people

Hop in the sidecar and join us for a bimble through the great British countryside on this half day experience. We'll take a scenic ride through rural Northumberland before trading in the tarmac for forest track and racing off through the Wark Forest. Surrounded by towering spruce trees, we'll pick our way along the track before emerging on the Northern side of the Roman Empire! We'll stop for coffee and a slice of cake before circling back along the wall to our meeting point. This half day experience provides a quick jaunt out to the Wall but if you're looking for a bit more time to explore the wall you need to book a full day experience.

What's Included?
A private guide, one motorbike and sidecar outfit shared between two people (one in sidecar one on the pillion seat) and refreshments. 

HADRIAN'S WALL AND FOREST FULL DAY

£245pp / 6 hours / Minimum 2 people

This full day experience includes the same starting route as the half day experience but also includes time to explore Hadrian's Wall. We'll park up at the wall and spend some time appreciating the history of it. There will be time for you to take a walk along the wall to visit the famous Sycamore Gap or visit the Vindolana Roman Fort Museum. Your guide will tailer the day to what you are most interested in. Also included is a tasty lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

WHAT  TO EXPECT 

  • All experiences are based on two people sharing one sidecar. One person rides the motorcycle and one person is the co-pilot in the sidecar itself. If you're both licensed riders you can swap seats throughout the day and if you don't have a license, you can just hop in the sidecar and enjoy the ride. 

  • All guides are trained in sidecar riding and are OGA qualified motorcycle guides. Our guide will lead the day from another motorcycle or motorcycle and sidecar in front of you. 

  • All experiences are private guided so we go at your pace.

  • FUN! Our experiences are exhilarating and without a doubt the best way to adventure in the North East.

  • Safety first. We take safety really seriously and only travel at safe legal speeds. Sidecars are a thrill at 30mph! Plus we can provide helmets and other safety equipment if you don't have your own.

"So much fun! I completely didn't expect it to be so fun!"

As well as our set experience days we can offer bespoke experiences to meet your needs. All of our experiences are private guided but if you have experience of riding sidecars before and want to use the time exploring Northumberland then get in touch to plan your itinerary. We can also organise multi-day experiences around Northumberland or anywhere else in the UK, just let us know your needs and we'll get it arranged. 

BESPOKE EXPERIENCES

  • Who can join an experience day?
    We have experience options for both riders and passengers. If you wish to ride a Ural, you will need to be over 25 years of age with less than 3 points on your license. There are no specific requirements if you wish to join us for a passenger ride.
  • Do I have to have ridden a sidecar before?
    No, the experience centre is open to anyone who has a full motorcycle license. We welcome both experienced sidecar riders who are looking to test a Ural and those who are just beginners looking to try it for the first time.
  • Where?
    We have locations both near Morpeth, Northumberland. please contact us for the exact address.
  • I want to buy a motorcycle and sidecar but don't want to do an experience day can I just come and test ride a motorcycle and sidecar?
    If you are interested in buying a Ural or Watsonian Sidecar but do not want to do a full experience day, you are welcome to arrange a viewing. We are also more than happy to take you for a test ride. However, whether you are an experienced sidecar rider or novice, you will not be able to ride and will instead be a passenger in the sidecar for the test ride. Riding a motorcycle with a sidecar is very different to a solo motorcycle and unless we have been given the opportunity to assess your ability, we can only take you for a ride as a sidecar passenger. We would strongly recommend you join us for an experience day before riding and don't forget that each experience day comes with a £250 gift voucher accessories.
  • How many people will be on an experience day?
    Our Rider Experiences are for groups of up to 8 people sharing 4 sidecar outfits. If you would like a private experience you can arrange that by contacting us at contact@thesidecarguys.com
  • Can I cancel my experience day?
    Experience days are non-refundable. However, if you can no longer attend your booked day we can change the day to a date of your choosing. You can also gift the experience day to someone else.
