Sunderland to Morpeth

37 miles (60 km)

This ride follows National Cycle routes 1 and 155 through Tyne and Wear and into Northumberland. You start in Sunderland and head north along the coast to South Shields where you can catch the South Shields Ferry across the harbour. You then continue along the coast through Tynemouth, Whitley Bay and Blyth. Near Newbiggin By the Sea you turn inland along National Cycle route 155 passing Queen Elizabeth II Country Park, Wansbeck Riverside Country Park and Ashington before finishing by crossing the River Wansbeck at Morpeth.
This is an interesting, largely coastal route with several off road sections making for a worthwhile ride. Highlights include the splendid cliffs and coastal scenery at Souter Lighthouse and Whitburn Coastal Park near South Shields.
