Hi, as the title states we make use of the waggonways and byeways of the north tyneside area often arranging a ride out every weekend during the spring, summer and autumn and when the weather permits in the winter. The rides vary in distance between 10 and 45 miles, always a socialble run travelling at the speed of the slowest rider, breakaways can be accomodated for those that want more pace with regroups planned as necessary. We always stop for a cuppa/cake/refresh along the routes and the emphasis is on showing people the many tracks and byeways we have up here that can be linked together to make some interesting and scenic runs. The routes can be managed on almost any bicycle but the terrain is better suited to bikes with a bit more tyre and possibly suspension (mountain and hybrid for some generic terms), we are not excluding anybody with a specific bike but just pointing out the comfort level to be expected, it is gravel, mud, grass, paving and cycleway quality tarmac (tree roots poking through) that you'll traverse. Anybody welcome, join any ride you fancy, miss what you don't, starts are usually from the Hub on the quayside or south gosforth depending on the route of the day. We send a mail out during the week stating route, directions and distances with expected stops and food/drink opportunities to expect. Our current rider group consist of men and women in the 20 to 65 age group.
