What other riders think of this route

Sky Ride Local in Middlesbrough

Come and try this lovely 13 mile off-road ride along the old railway lines that once transported freight from Sunderland to Ports along the River Tees. Once you arrive at the picturesque midway point at Hurworth Burn Reservoir you can stop for a break and the chance to take in the amazing scenery. From here you head back to Wynyard Park via a nice forest track within Brierley Woods. If getting out and stretching your legs sounds good to you then this ride is not to be missed!

Hopefully see you on a ride very soon and check out Sky Ride Stockton on Facebook for what we get up to.
  • Chris Orr
    Chris Orr Hello, In to my 3rd season as a SkyRide leader now, and looking forward to another summer of cycling. I have been interested in cycling all my life, mainly in the Mountain Bike arena. I work as Cycling Officer for Middlesbrough Council, so my love of bikes has spilled over into my day job. Commuting by bike to work allows me to ride nearly every day in some way or shape, and I love the freedom from the car that it brings. I've completed the C2C (Coast to Coast) twice, and this year I'm attempting the London to Paris route, where I'm hoping my ride leader skills will work on the other side of the road... Hope to see you all on a ride at some time, Cheers Chris
