Starting point

NE21 6RT

Spa Well Road, Winlaton Mill, Blaydon-On-Tyne, Tyne And Wear, NE21 6RT We'll meet in the car park opposite Winlaton Mill Garage on the A694

Starting from Derwenthaugh Park we will follow the cycle path down to the Tyne, travelling along the Gateshead side of the river, past the Metro Centre and down to Gateshead Quays. We'll cross over the Millennium Bridge and call in at the Cycle Hub http://www.thecyclehub.org/ for cake, coffee and chat (bring some money for refreshments). We'll head back along the north side of the river, via the Business Park and Scotswood Bridge. This will be a leisurely ride of about 12 miles mainly on cycle path and nearly all flat. It's an urban ride and you'll find out how easy it is to get to the Metro Centre or Newcastle by bike but away from traffic. This is an ideal ride for beginners or if you've not been on a bike for a while.  We’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. We really welcome newcomers to our rides. Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.  Look forward to seeing you there!
