The North Circular
The route takes the entire length of Hadrian’s Cycle Way (from South Shields in the East to Ravenglass in the West) and then returning to Sunderland on the famous C2C route – so its a double tick-off on the ‘bucket-list’. This is a new trip starting and finishing in Sunderland.
Don’t forget the obligatory ‘dipping the tyre in the sea’ at the beginning and end of the ride!
On our trips, wherever possible, we utilise country lanes and national cycle network paths, and try 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 inclement we will make use of cafes or pubs that lie along the route.
The support van will be on hand assisting with the day to day running of the tour and towards the end of each day transporting your luggage to your accommodation. Wherever possible during the day we stop the van in a safe place and offer hot drinks and snacks.
Your accommodation, on a twin share bed and breakfast basis, will be in hotels. We prefer to use good standard local hotels with ensuite facilities where available.
Single accommodation is available for a supplement of £235.
Breakfasts and lunches are included. You will need to purchase your own evening meals, which are usually eaten communally, although you are free to opt out if you wish.
In the Tour Plan, (B, L, D) refers to meals included in the trip cost i.e. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
