|This is a great scenic route for beginners or experts, and is a great way to get fit. Overall, it is a medium difficulty route, with some easy and some hard sections. You will be riding on a mix of roads, and cycle tracks that are dangerous and hard to ride on in bad weather, so a moutain bike is advised rather than a road bike. There are many benches and seating areas on the route, too many to mention, so there is plenty of opportunity to stop and rest if you need to.
When you are on the cycle track between Ryhope and South Hetton you must look out for the pub (the only one on the straight route), which is on the main road that you will hit. At the end of the cycle track turn left onto the A182 and follow the road out of South Hetton and into Easington. When you get to the public house called The Village Inn, turn left onto the B1432 and follow the road towards the A19 and past the industrial estate. Turn left onto the B1285 and go over the A19. Turn left at the roundabout onto the A182. Follow this left through the roundabout over the A19 and straight across the next roundabout. Follow the A182 towards Dawdon. Cross the roundabout into Edith Street and go round to the right turn into Queen Alexandra Road and back onto Princess Road.
