|The route takes you along the coast all the way so plenty of views and photos to be taken, the dunes path has lots of hills and downhill sections (watch out for dog walkers).
The rest of the route takes you directly adjacent to the sea along the coast path/promanade. with pubs shops and restraunts along the way if refreshments are needed, the route is fun and is good for a regular cycle, some off road sections but mainly paths.

|Is ok but if you go on a busy day like Sunday the track is full of walkers and dogs so you're constantly slowing down to get past people and when you get to the Tynemouth end stretch you may as well cycle on the road because the path is crammed. |

|I agree with the previous poster; it's very difficult to simply flow along and enjoy it when it's busy.|
However, It's a great ride for just tootling along and enjoying the scenery when it's a bit quieter. There are good cafes at either end too so it doesn't matter which way you do it.
