This is looking like a challenge (or at least a nice extended tour) https://www.fortfortheday.co.uk/#/

Interesting - thanks. 

None shown within easy reach from here by bike, but there are surely more? Will do a bit of map-poring.

Past Chesters Roman fort  and Vindolanda "tat" shop  today . I  make it  9 forts I can do on a 62 mile ride . But Geordieshire is the land of Forts and Castles . Lot of walking to some of the  holes in the ground .   Aydon Castle or Prudhoe Castle  are a lot better to visit than Shildon hill or Onumm Roman fort .I will stick with the British cycle Quest . The Cathedral rides do look very canny Though .

It is obviously a personal selection, but some very noteable ommissions.
Just a short bit of Dere street has Rochester, Ridleeshope, Chew Green all on bridleways or roads

This is a project and Carol is very clear that there are indeed many more than the 366 currently listed.  I think that there may well be an update coming allowing individuals to add more to the site.
