About The Event
Long established as the opening event of our festival weekend, The Tyne 6 Bridges ride attracts cyclists of all abilities, united in the desire for a fun, well-organised and signposted ride along traffic-free routes.
There are two routes of 10.5 miles and 16 miles (view routes in details here), both ideal for those who want a leisurely and fun cycling experience and perfect for occasional cyclists or those who want to ride with young families.
The rides use the largely traffic-free Sustrans Routes 72 & 14 going out, westwards along the north bank of the Tyne and returning eastwards along the southern bank.
Entries: all entries are £10 - entries close 1 July 2024.
You can choose on the day which ride you wish to undertake. Riders will start from 6.15pm onwards. There are no allocated start times - start whenever you want after 6.15pm, but please follow the instructions of our marshals during the pre-start and start (more details on page 6).
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 FinishAll riders are expected to finish their chosen ride before 9pm. Upon finishing, report to the sign-on tent where we can check you in and hand you your Cyclone Goody Bag.
