Pre Ride Advice
The course is along NCN route 14 heading from the school along Ocean drive and joining the cycleway to Dalton Park.
If you havent ridden a bike for a while build up to the 26.2 mile distance before the day.
The path is rugged so choose wisely the type of bike , We would suggest that its unsuitable for narrow tyres.
We suggest that you carry at least 1 new inner tube with you and the tools necessary to change if you have a puncture.
Sustrans Cycle hub in Church St Hartlepool have bike free check sessions too
We will have snacks available however it is a long way so please make sure you have enough water and snacks if required.
