Starting point


This year we will be running our traditional Christmas fancy dress ride with a suffragette twist. December 14th is the 100th anniversary of the first women's vote in the UK. To mark this occasion we are encouraging our riders to dress in recognition of this great anniversary, and, as it's Christmas, provide a seasonal twist. We will also encourage all riders to "vote" for their favourite ride, or a ride that they would like us to put on in 2019. We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with as it is always entertaining and sometimes unexpected :)

The ride starts on the Palace Green, outside Durham Cathedral, from there, we will pedal across Prebends Bridge up Potters Bank and join the Bishop Auckland Railway Path in Langley Moor. We will then head across on quiet roads to Sunderland Bridge. The route then climbs up the bank past Croxdale house and through the estate to meet the A181 at Bowburn. We will then follow the road into Durham and stop for a well earned coffee and slice of something at the Cathedral Café, allowing ample opportunity for fellow visitors to admire our festive array.

Recommended for children 10+ due to cycling alongside the busy A181 between Bowburn and Shincliffe.
This is a fancy dress ride - so please go wild, goodies will be overflowing for the best dressed bike and rider. It is usually hotly contested and we do recommend weeks of preparation.
As this ride has been scheduled close to Christmas, there is a likelihood of adverse weather. Please ensure that you dress appropriately for the this. Fingers crossed for a lovely crisp winter ride.
Please also bring along your voting slip and some money for refreshments, we will be dining at the Cathedral at the end of the ride. We look forward to seeing you.
