I am a British Cycling ride leader and creator of three cycling groups, administrator to another, with combined membership around 150 members. On the Komoot route planning program,I'm recognised for my contributions to cycling as a pioneer in Newcastle (twice), Hexham and Durham, with expert status in Cumbria areas. I specialise in rides that are in quiet or traffic free roads and tracks. Join me exploring highways and byways in and around Tyneside and Northumberland and Durham, finding some new routes, meet some new friends and having a good laugh along the way, with emphasis on no drop ride, along trails or quiet roads, traffic free where possible. Rides are for regular riders above beginner level usually 20 to 50 miles at a regulated speed 10 to 13 mph, ride may include rough ground in places, gravel, mud and tree roots etc,which can be done on most bikes with a bit more tread. full details will be provided on posted rides. We have regular catch up points, nobody is dropped, but take note of route in case you stray, we stop for cuppa and cake around halfway. Ride starts are usually from the Newcastle Cycle Hub or Peddling Squares and occasionally Ponteland depending on route. Please read all information posted for route of the day. For the safety and enjoyment of all riders please check your bike is roadworthy, that you are capable of the route mileage. Bring: hand sanitiser, helmet, 2 tubes, waterproofs (even in good weather) and lights for your bike, also enough food and drink for hydration and energy. All tools you need so you are self-sufficient in repairing your bike, punctures etc. and do not need close distance contact or to share with the rest of the group. Use of a face covering is optional. You are free to choose to ride with us, but you do so entirely at your own risk. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injury suffered as a result of participation.
