Crossing the Tyne by Ferry and Pedestrian Tunnel

Sunday 7th October 2012 at 11.00am 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
Segedunum Wallsend Car Park.  NE28 6HR
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
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders

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!
