Jaunt from Durham to Croxdale

Sunday 24th March 2013 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
Durham Rowing Club, City Boathouse/Green La/Old Elvet , Durham DH1 3JU  DH1 3JU
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  (2 hours 0 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Durham

Starting at the Rowing Club we will climb up through Nevilles Cross to join the Bishop Auckland Railway Path in Langley Moor. We then head across on quiet roads to Sunderland Bridge. The route then climbs up the bank past Croxdale house and through the estate to meet the A181 at Bowburn. We will then follow the road into Durham and stop for a well earned coffee and slice of something at Maiden Castle before going back along the riverside to the club. 

This is a lovely scenic route of around 12 miles, which will be taken at a leisurely pace. Come and join us and enjoy the beautiful countryside south of Durham.

Recommended for children 10+ due to cycling alongside the busy A181 between Bowburn and Shincliffe.

Dress warm/appropriate for the weather - warm gloves and thick socks are a must!!

Please also bring along some money for refreshments. We look forward to seeing you.

    Sylvia Bell Hi I've been back riding a bike for 5 years now. Inspired by my children's love of riding, I joined my local NHS Get Active cycling scheme. I was hooked! I still participate in the scheme and regularly ride socially 2-3 times a week. It's a great way to keep fit both physically and psychologically. I'm hoping I can introduce others to enjoy the pleasure of riding their bikes too! Look forward to meeting you on our rides. Sylvia
