The riding around Newcastle (and the North East) is fantastic! There’s something for everyone too – smooth traffic-free cycle paths, twisty country backroads, short-but-sharp sections of French style pavé (cobbles) and even some secret single track not far from The Cycle Hub!

In order to help you get the best out of the riding here we’ve put together some self-led cycle routes. Throughout the year there are occasional social rides on a Saturdays, they start at 10am from the Hub. Please check with us before turning up!

Cycle Routes – we’ve put together a shortlist of our favourite rides in the area. There’s 7 routes at the minute, each graded to show what fitness/skill/ability levels we recommend. We can supply simple paper maps, a digital PDF version of the map and/or GPS routes so that you can get yourself safely and easily around the route.
