The Tyne 6 Bridges Leisure will use the Sustrans routes which are mostly traffic free and therefore safe for all abilities. The route is suitable for all types of bike. We will meet at the Cycle Hub before heading west along Sustrans Route 72 passing under the Tyne Bridge,  Swing Bridge, High Level Bridge, Redheugh Bridge and on towards Scotswood Bridge following the banks of the Tyne. Along the way riders will be able to see some of the Tyne's industrial heritage and some famous landmarks such as Dunston Staiths and Vickers Armsrong Armaments Factory which was originally built by Lord Armstrong and at one time had a workforce of 30,000. Upon reaching Scotswood Bridge we will cross over to the south side of the Tyne and pick up Sustrans Route14 heading back east towards Newcastle. On the way riders will pass the famous Gateshead Metro Centre and carry on towards the Sage Music Centre and the Baltic Arts Centre. We will return to Baltic Square  and onto the Hub completing a distance of 10 miles.
