Breeze Durham Summer Evening Ride 2 Aykley Heads and Newton Hall
Tues 14th May 6.45pm 6 miles
Start Clayport Library DH1 1WU
Join us for our 2nd of 6 summer weekly Tuesday evening rides from Durham. Beginning with flatter and shorter rides we’ll increase our miles and hills over the weeks to 12 miles on 11th June. Doing all the rides as a series is recommended if you’re a newcomer to cycling so you can build up confidence and stamina over the weeks.
This ride is a summer favourite of ours - a surprising 5 mile circuit largely on traffic free cycle routes from Durham City Centre to Newton Hall and Brasside and back along the River Wear.
In true Durham style there are some hills but they are worth the effort for the lovely views of the Cathedral on the way back downhill to town.
The ride is most suitable for hybrid bikes as it is a mix of surfaces.
In order for the ride to leave promptly, please be punctual so we can carry out bike checks, etc. prior to us setting off. Please make sure your bike is in working condition and bring a spare tube to fit your tyres. We should be riding for about an hour and there will be the option to stop for a cuppa/drink once back in town.
As always we can’t predict the weather so please dress suitably. You are better to be overdressed as you can always take layers off. It may still be glove and buff weather at the start of May.
