Waskerley Way to Tynemouth 1 Day Cycle Ride

This 38 mile section forms part of the C2C and is an easy and attractive option to take when you are time restricted. A one day cycle route that serves all of your cycling needs and delivers everything a day out on your bike requires.

Situated between Rookhope and Consett, Waskerley Way formerly part of the old railway, has been converted into an excellent traffic-free route for both cyclists and walkers. The Waskerley Way is a beautiful beginning to this particular route, passing through varied landscape from urban fringe to exposed heather moorland. This area of countryside and variety of habitats allows for various plants and wildlife to live here. The red and black grouse, merlin, adder, slow worm and a variety of butterflies are among many of the wonderful species in this area. A point of interest along the way is Hownsgill Viaduct, a towering 46 feet above the tree canopy of Knitsley and High House Woods near Lydgetts junction, one of the most impressive railway structures in the North East.

You will go on to pass through Castleside, where route 7 joins route 14 just before Consett, Stanley, Beamish and onto Sunderland. The home straight, route 72 through Newcastle follows the Derwent Walk, a scenic and easy ride with the quayside, its modern buildings and 7 river Tyne Bridges being the highlight of this pathway. The next stretch, a shore leading through Cullercoats and up to Whitely Bay is where your journey ends, a charming spot to celebrate your feat.

Our transfer packages for riders, bikes and bags will vary depending upon whether you’re collected from your home, multiple collection points, transport hubs or the amount of people travelling in your group.

Firstly, if you need to be transported to the start of the cycle route you’re about to embark, you need to establish where you would like to be collected with your bike & baggage. Also, will this be one point for all or does each of your group require separate collections from different points?

Next, depending on the length of your cycle route and the number of days you’re cycling will dictate how many stop-overs you require. Find this out and we will collect your baggage and take it ahead of your arrival to your chosen accommodation, then collect it the following day and do the same for the duration of your cycle route. At the end of the ride, we will collect you and your group with bags and take you back to your pre-arranged drop-off point, again this may be one point for the whole group or individual drop-off’s.

All of our transfer packages for riders, bikes and baggage are individually priced with all of the above taken into consideration. We are very competitive and take care with each enquiry having already transported thousands of enthusiastic riders and their invaluable bikes and even more bags.
