Cycle by the Sea

In support of St Oswald’s Hospice

Saturday 21st September 2024

Get on your bike this September and take on one of two scenic routes through Northumberland (a shorter linear and a longer loop option) in support of St Oswald’s Hospice patients and families.

We’ll start the day at The Alnwick Garden with a super send off for our cyclists, who will then head off on their coastal adventure to Tynemouth (approx 65km). Those wanting a tougher challenge could take on the loop route, heading back north via Morpeth, finishing back at The Alnwick Garden (approx 140km).


There are two routes to choose from:

  • GPX files to download the full route and signage on route
  • 2 x wristbands per cyclist for entry to the Alnwick Garden on the day of the event, admitting two adults and up to 8 children free of charge. This allows your friends and family to join you at the start line, enjoy the day while you ride, and meet you afterwards at the finish line
