Hello and welcome to Guided Rides – Sunderland.

We are a recreational cycling group that runs a series of bike rides in Sunderland in association with HSBC UK & British Cycling and part of the Let’s Ride / Guided Rides / Breeze programmes.

Guided Rides are very inclusive, anyone is welcome to join in with a suitable ride and all rides are run to a level which means that no-one is left behind, and we will always ride to enjoy the scenery and surroundings of our beautiful area. Our rides are designed for fun, recreation, socialising and enjoyment, whilst at the same time meeting new people and light exercise.

Everyone involved in leading our rides and running the group are local volunteers trained and qualified by British Cycling in both leading and designing rides and routes, plus leaders are First Aid trained.

All rides are designed to start and finish at the same place, involve riding a mixture of different types of routes, using a combination of mainly cycleways, trails, roads and are designed with different levels of ability in mind.

We pick out interesting places to visit in our local area that you may be familiar with, showing how you can travel by bike. Rides always include a stopping point around the half-way mark which is a local eatery where you will be able to get something to eat and drink.

All rides are pitched at different levels of ability, these are specified in the ride description and as part of the ride details so you can see which rides are suitable for you.



EASYGOING – These rides are the easiest rides and will be suitable for most people, including beginners. They will be of a very short distance (up to 10 miles) and will run at a leisurely pace.

STEADY – These rides start to move things along a little faster (up to 20 miles) and are suitable for people who are regular cyclists and able to sustain themselves for longer.

CHALLENGING – These rides will go further and faster (over 20 miles) and are suitable only for competent and experienced cyclists who are used to sustaining themselves for several hours on a bike and travelling some distance.



Please book onto the rides using the Let's Ride website so we can be sure who is coming, also remember to cancel your place if you realise you can’t attend, this will enable someone on the waiting list to come along.

we’re allowed a maximum of 8 riders per leader.

You must have a bike in good condition, wearing a helmet is optional but highly recommended on all rides (children under 16 must wear a helmet). Your bike will be assessed by ride leaders at the start of a ride as We want everyone to stay safe and enjoy the ride.

If you have any questions you’d like to ask in advance, you can now do so by using the Conversation tab at the bottom of the ride page once you have booked your place.

We look forward to seeing you on our rides!
