Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

HUBNIC-5

After a short hiatus our Saturday Social Rides are back! Aimed at beginners, those returning to riding after a break or anyone who wants to discover some of the local area at a relaxed pace, this is a great opportunity to get out on the bikes and enjoy a spot of social cycling. Rides start from The Cycle Hub at 10.00am sharp. Each ride will be led by a qualified cycling guide who will be on hand to help answer any bike related questions you might have and ensure you all have a fantastic ride.

We will be following a different route each time, with details as follows:

Newcastle Parks and Trails – A route taking in the best of Newcastle’s green spaces. A mix of quiet roads and cycle paths. The total route is approximately 12 miles/20kms and includes some gentle climbing. Ideal for beginners or those getting back into cycling. Hub Grade 1

Tyne Bridges – A riverside route heading west from the Hub and heading out along the banks of the Tyne as far as the Scotswood Bridge. The route is a mix of cycle path and quite roads and is 16 miles/25kms in total. Ideal for fit beginners and anyone looking to improve their fitness a little. Hub Grade 1

Tynemouth – Bring your bucket and spade as we’re heading to the coast. The ride uses part the C2C route and is a mixture of cycle path and quiet roads. The total distance is 21 miles/34kms and is suitable for anyone looking to improve their fitness. Hub Grade 1/2

Wylam – This is a slightly longer route which uses the Tyne riverside path and heads west as far as the village of Wylam. We’ll use the dedicated paths on both sides of the river, so you’ll get different views all the way. The route is a mix of cycle path and quite roads and is 25 miles/40kms in total. Hub Grade 2

Gibside Hall – This is a slightly longer route which uses the Tyne riverside path and minor roads and heads south to visit Gibside – the 18th Century National Trust country estate situated in the Derwent Valley. The route is a mix of cycle path and quite roads and is 25 miles/40kms in total. Hub Grade 2

Consett – This is a slightly longer route which uses the Tyne riverside path and the Derwent Walk (a converted former railway path) to head south-west of Newcastle to the small town of Consett. We’ll stop at a cafe in Consett, before returning to Newcastle. The total distance is around 40 miles/65kms

Corbridge – This is our longest Saturday Social ride and is only suitable for experienced riders, due to its longer distance and slightly more challenging terrain. The route heads west from Newcastle following the Tyne and takes in cycle paths and minor roads, with one section of busier road towards the end. We’ll stop at a cafe in Corbridge, before returning to Newcastle. The total distance is 45miles/72kms. Hub Grade 3
