Once you get where you are going you’ll want to be sure you can park your bike safely. Cycle stands have been installed across the city centre.  Most of these are plain Sheffield-type stands, so it’s always wise to bring your own lock.

If you want to cycle in the city centre but feel you live too far to bring your own bike, think about travelling in by public transport and using a hire bike to get around. View scratchbikes for details.

Cycle Newcastle

Newcastle aim to develop a cycling culture with more people of all ages cycling more often, in a city that is easy and safe to get around by bike.

Cycling is great fun and most people find it easy to do. All you need to get started is a bike. There are lots to choose from and not all of them have two wheels!
