Starting point


From County Hall we will ride out of Durham on the Sacriston Road before turning up to Broomhouse Farm via Acornclose Lane.
We'll then cycle along to Burnhope, Maiden Law, Greencroft and then to the main event at Iveston Bank. This conquered we will pedal over to Knitsley for a well earned break for lunch, before heading back down to Durham along the Lanchester Valley Railway line.
