Middlesbrough College, Middlehaven
If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.
This ride starts from Middlesbrough College and then passes the Transporter Bridge and Dinosaur park before following the cycle path alongside the River Tees, to the Barrage. On the way you'll pass under Newport Bridge one of only two Vertical lift bridges in Europe. This lovely ride along the river uses local cycle paths and so is a completely traffic free route.
