The Hurworth Burn Reservoir Romp

Saturday 15th December at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Wynyard Woodland Park (Formerly Castle Eden Walkway) Station House TS21 3JG
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
2 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 50 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.
Mountain Bike, Hybrid (off road tyres) 

Sky Ride Local in Middlesbrough

If you’re fairly confident on your bike on dirt and gravel surfaces and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Off-Road Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, there is barely a metre of tarmac in sight on these rides so come and enjoy the scrunch of gravel and the squelch of mud under your tyres with us! Rides are between 6 and 15 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.


Come join us on 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 we arrive at our picturesque midway point at Hurworth Burn Reservoir we will stop for a break and the chance to take in the amazing scenery. From here we head back to Wynyard Park via a nice forest track within Brierley Woods. If getting out and stretching your legs with family and friends sounds good to you then this ride is not to be missed!

Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Chris Kirby Chris Kirby
  • Chris Orr Chris Orr Hello,

    I'm one of the latest additions to the Sky ride leader group for the area so have a lot of catching up to do!
    That said, I am not new to cycling and have been interested in cycling all my life. I work as Cycling Officer for Middlesbrough Council, so my love of bikes has spilled over into my day job. Love mountain biking, but also commute to work via bike, so innevitably end up riding nearly every day in some way or shape.
    Hope to see you all on a ride at some time,

    Thanks
    Chris
