About us 

Regular rides from our Teams bungalow are for anyone wanting to start or get back pedalling. If you don’t have a bike no problem, we have bikes and helmets available.

The rides last about 2 hours, on ‘traffic free’ cycle paths/ quiet roads and include plenty of stops to check out the views (and have a cuppa!). We meet up get sorted and then we’re off. Our rides are at a relaxed pace with the emphasis on socialising and getting out! 

Our supportive ride leaders will help get you into cycling.

Information about the group rides 

Rides are free to join and are every Friday meeting at 9:30 am. We meet at Big Local Gateshead, The Bungalow, Derwentwater Rd, Gateshead NE8 2SH (opposite St. Aiden’s CE Primary School).  So come along for a ride!
