The North Circular – Hadrian’s Cycleway and C2C route follows the entire length of Hadrian’s (wall) Cycle Way (from South Shields in the East to Ravenglass in the West) and then returns to Sunderland on the famous C2C route – a double tick on the ‘bucket-list’. North Circular starts and finishes in Sunderland.
Remember the tradition of dipping your tyre in the sea at the beginning and end of the ride.
Wherever possible we utilise country lanes and national cycle network paths, trying to avoid main roads. We ride at a pace that is well within the reach of a fit and competent cyclist. We start each day at around 8.45am with a morning briefing where the tour leader will explain the day’s route and the traffic and weather conditions that you are likely to encounter. You will also be briefed on the place where we will be having our lunch stop. We usually provide a healthy picnic/sandwiches or if the weather is bad we will make use of cafes or pubs along the route.
The support van will be available to help with the day to day running of the tour. Towards the end of each day it will transport your luggage to your accommodation. Wherever possible during the day we stop the van in a safe place and offer hot drinks and snacks.
