- Starting Point & Postcode
- Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit Marton Road TS4 3SA
- 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.
- 3 hours 55 mins (2 hours 55 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.

The ride then heads East towards Faceby and skirts the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park winding its way towards Ingleby Greenhow and Battersby in the imposing but picturesque shadow of the Cleveland Hills.

Rider Comments on the Route
Compared to the last ride (Seaside). This is a really good ride and one I would probably do as a training ride (50 mile round trip from my house). No major climbs, nice and steady pace. Kind of agree with other views in relation to riders snatching at brakes, this did lead to one crash, but its a catch 22 situation I guess. You can't teach common sense. A safe distance is all it needs. Todays leaders did a great job on a good route.
Very good ride ,route good a lot on main roads which some dont like ,but what can you do ?,Steve says the pace was slow i clocked it at time up to 14 mph with the group close up. This is one of the best rides and with a little looking at ie getting off the main roads which can be done it should remain a good strong ride out .
I enjoyed the ride despite almost all of it being on busy roads.The group was large and the pace was quite slow,which lead to a lot people snatching at brakes when people in front inexplicably slowed down.not much time to interact with other riders or leaders.I prefered the north yorkshire climb despite being a poor climber..
