Middlesbrough Sports Village, Alan Peacock Way, Middlesbrough TS4 3AE
Starting from the Middlesbrough Sports Village, Alan Peacock Way, this circular route heads up Dixons Bank and we travel west to Stainton before traveling south through Seamer, Stokesley, Great Busby through Carlton and ascending Carlton Bank, at your own pace.
This bank is ranked 58 in the ‘100 Greatest Cycling Climbs’ (2010). We regroup at the top, stopping for a well-earned cuppa and bite to eat at Lordstones Café.
We return descending into Chop Gate, and then travel northerly descending Clay bank and on towards Great Broughton, Ingleby Greenhow, Easby, Little Ayton, Great Ayton and through Nunthorpe back down Dixons bank before returning to the Sports Village.
