QUAY TO SEA TYNESIDE CYCLING TOUR
TYNESIDE CYCLING TOUR:QUAY TO SEA
This classic Tyneside Cycling Tour route follows the last (or first) leg of one of the UK’s most popular long distance cycle trails, the Coast to Coast or Sea to Sea (C2C) route, which connects the Irish Sea and the North Sea across Cumbria and Tyneside.
Setting off from the Ouseburn area of Newcastle our Tyneside cycling tour explores the course of the river Tyne to its mouth at the historic and picturesque seaside town of Tynemouth.
Trace the region’s Roman past at Hadrian’s Wall’s most eastern fort, Segedunum, in modern day Wallsend.
Find out more about Tyneside’s proud shipbuilding past which dominated the banks of the River Tyne for centuries until only one single shipyard remained, the famous Swan Hunter, builders of the RMS Mauretania, the world’s largest ocean liner.
North Shields is famous for its fish quay and the iconic High and Low Light buildings. Tynemouth offers a dramatic coastal setting with its cliff-top ruins of the historic priory and castle, a vibrant village and its beautiful sandy beaches. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy some well-earned refreshment before heading back to Newcastle.
