Start Howlands Park and Ride DH1 3TQ

Join us for our 3rd of 6 summer weekly Thursday evening rides from Durham. Beginning with flatter and shorter rides we’ll increase our miles and hills over the weeks to 12 miles on 10th June. Doing all the rides as a series is recommended if you’re a newcomer to cycling so you can build up confidence and stamina over the weeks.
This, our Croxdale Ride, is one of our favourites as it takes us through the quiet and hidden rural Estate south of the River Wear. A bit of a gem.

The ride is most suitable for hybrid bikes as it is a mix of surfaces and mostly away from traffic.

In order for the ride to leave promptly, please be punctual so we can carry out bike checks, etc. prior to us setting off. Please make sure your bike is in working condition and bring a spare tube to fit your tyres. We should be riding for about an hour and there will be the option to stop for a cuppa/drink once back in town.

As always we can’t predict the weather so please dress suitably. You are better to be overdressed as you can always take layers off. It may still be glove and buff weather in May.

For any queries please contact us at [email protected]. For any last minute cancellations on the day please text 07708327943 (note this phone is only for the day of the ride) otherwise use the option to cancel when you log in to If the weather is bad we will only contact you if we are cancelling the ride and will do so no later than 5.30pm on the day. If you have not heard from us it is going ahead.

We look forward to meeting you.
