Long established as the opening event of our festival weekend, it attracts cyclists of all abilities, united in the desire for a fun, well-organised and signposted ride along traffic-free routes.
Event Location, Parking & Sign-On
On the day, sign-on/registration is open from 4pm until 7.30pm.
All riders aged 14 and over must sign on individually. Parents/guardians of children under 14 must sign-on on their behalf. All riders under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult during their ride. An adult may accompany more than one child.
To make the process as quick as possible, please bring to sign-on/registration a copy of your entry reference ID number which you will have received when you originally entered the event (a print-off of the confirmation email is ideal). Alternatively, a driver’s licence or similar document with your name on it.
We will be following social distancing guidelines during this process, more details of which you can find on page 6. However, there will also be plenty of clear signage and marshals to help you.
Riders will set off in pairs or singly in a steady “trickle”, not in larger groups as in previous years. We will aim to get you out on the road as promptly as possible once you are ready to depart. Please follow the directions of marshals and other event staff at all times.
At The Finish
Upon finishing, all riders will receive a T-shirt and Cyclone Goody Bag. Please aim to leave the event relatively promptly.
After The Event
The Tyne 6 Bridges is a gentle, Friday evening ride along flat trails beside one of the UK’s most important waterways, where the mix of stunning modern architecture and historic bridges creates a fascinating backdrop.
