Newcastle Cycle Tours

About

Here at Newcastle Cycle Tours we offer visitors the best way to see the sights of Newcastle - by bicycle!
 
We provide a bike and helmet and a local guide who will take you round the city and regale you with stories behind the world famous landmarks and hidden gems of canny Newcastle.
 
So if you are keen to explore the sights but are also keen to lower your carbon footprint, read on...
 
Tours run in small groups of no more than ten people.
 
The Tour
 
On this tour you will learn about:
  • Newcastle's famous 7 bridges within half a mile of river, spanning the river Tyne and spanning 150 years. No other city offers such a concentration of bridges to admire.
  • The (New) castle keep and black gate and sections of the old town wall.
  • The largest timber structure in Europe and possibly the world!
  • Newcastle's colourful sons and daughters, Earl Grey who did more than invent my favourite tea!!. George and Robert Stephenson pioneers of the railways. Joseph Swan inventor of the electric light bulb. Bessie Surtees who eloped from a window to marry a coal merchant's son who went on to become Lord Chancellor.
  • Plus many other quirky and interesting facets of the home of the Geordie.
There are stops at each destination and plenty of photo opportunities! This is a leisurely cycle which is accessible to anyone who can ride a bike!
 
There are two tours per day starting at 10.30am (finishes approx. 12.30am) and 1.30pm (finishes approx. 3.30pm)
 
There's simply no better way to sample the rich diversity and contrasting cityscape of Newcastle - home of the industrial revolution.
 
Let our guide show and tell you about Newcastle, and you will feel that you have a real orientation of the city and you will have taken the first steps to becoming an adopted Geordie.
