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 10 mins  (2 hours 30 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in North Tyneside

Following in the cycle wheels of our ancestors we will cycle Route 72 from Segedunum, previously Swan Hunter's ship yard, to North Shields and take the ferry to South Shields. From the Customs House we will follow the coastline to South Shields for a refreshment stop. Our return journey will follow Route 14 to the Tyne Pedestrian Tunnel and retrace our route back to Segedunum.
Take this opportunity to ride through the historic Pedestrian Tunnel before it closes for refurbishment!
