Tynemouth Cycle

Alistair and I embarked on a long, hot, sunny bike ride to Tynemouth and back today – a round trip of about 17 miles. It’s the longest ride I’ve done for quite a few years, so I was glad of the pit stop at the pub for a refreshing pint at The Wooden Dolly in North Shields! The final hill up to Tynemouth Castle from sea level is a killer, but at least the Coat Road is mainly flat on the way back to Walkergate.

Willington Cut Bridge takes the Metro over the valley and on towards the coast:
