|This is a road route, mainly on B roads, but with sections of A roads and country lanes and some hills. I did the route anti-clockwise, so the main climb is early on into Sherburn Hill. If you want to extend the route to get to the sea, there will be additional climbs to get back up onto the original route. Remember that prevailing westerly winds are likely to make the ride back a bit tougher.|

|Started this in Houghton Le Spring as I live there.|
Instead of dropping down into Durham I turned direct on the A167 as I had done 7 rides in a fortnight and thought I would save a bit energy.
Once you get onto the A177 and start heaing out of Durham this is a very enjoyable route.
Nice climb at Sherburn hill as it is quite long and deptively steep.
I did it on a Road bike and it took me 2.25 hrs.
