YOUR CYCLING TOUR ITINERARY
Enjoy a leisurely cycle ride through Ouseburn, the former cradle of industrialisation, turned into a vibrant, creative & cultural community hub.
Your Newcastle cycling tour continues across Heaton Park into the beautiful Jesmond Dene. Explore this formerly private garden of the city’s most prolific industrialist of the 19th century, Lord Armstrong. You may even find the time to visit the cute Pet's Corner.
Journey onto the Town Moor, Newcastle’s green lungs, and larger than New York’s Central Park. Oddly, you’ll find some 600 cattle grazing in the middle of the city thanks to a ancient grazing rights still upheld today...
Take a break and enjoy a drink or snack at Urban Green Cafe near the Palace of Arts by the beautiful artificial lake of Exhibition Park, today home to Wylam Brewery.
Off into the heart of Newcastle! Explore the university quarter and continue into classical Grainger Town with its beautiful sandstone buildings along the famous Grey Street. Cycle into Old Newcastle and see the medieval Castle Keep and St. Nicholas Cathedral.
Cross the river Tyne over the grand High Level Bridge (with amazing views!) and cycle along the historic Quayside past contemporary architecture of Sage Gateshead & Baltic, Centre for Contemporary Art. Finally, cross Millennium Bridge to end your tour in style.
