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 15 mins  (2 hours 0 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.

Route Description

Breeze Bike Rides in Newcastle

We will meet at Newburn Leisure Centre, by the main entrance to the building at 10.30 am prompt. There is ample free car parking.

Our route will take us along both banks of the river Tyne on cycle paths and a few short stretches of quiet road. The route is suitable for hybrids, mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes etc. Road bikes should manage but may find it a bit bumpy on the dirt tracks.

We’ll aim for a speed of 10-12 mph. The route has very few interruptions to the pace, flowing nicely which allows for some very relaxed riding and chatting. The scenery is stunning at this time of year – fields in flower, animals in fields, trees in new leaf. This is a lovely contrast from city commuting and the perfect weekend unwind along the riverbanks.

Our stopping point is just before the end of our ride, at the fantastic Pedalling Squares Cafe. If you’ve not been before this is a must do destination for cyclists. Fantastic fresh ground coffee, a wide selection of teas and locally sourced foods and cakes make it one of our favourite places to see and be seen! Lots of cycle wear and gifts available too.

We’ll be hosting a regular Breeze Pedalling Squares ride every month.


Please bring with you on the ride :

• some cash for the café if you’d like refreshments

• a bottle of water and a snack if you might need one on the way round

• a spare inner tube for your bike and a puncture repair kit

• suitable clothing for changeable weather

• sun lotion if you think you might need it

We recommend some eye protection if possible, such as sunglasses or clear safety glasses. When sunny on this route there can be a few flying insects, they easily get stuck in unprotected eyes.

Breeze rides are sociable and welcome ladies of all abilities, this ride is most suitable for riders who’ve completed at least 10-15 mile rides before. The route is mostly flat or gently undulating but there is some bumpy bits and narrow paths next to the river that need confident handling of the bike. If you are unsure if this ride is suitable please contact breeze.bron@gmail.com for more information.
