***Get on your Bike and Ride to the Stars***


Ride to the Stars is an exhilarating, guided 40-mile road ride based on the Hadrian's Wall Cycle Path with an amazing theme to celebrate International Dark Sky Week.

Setting out from Newcastle's Cycle Hub cafe on the Quayside your guide will take you through Northumberland National Park's fabulous scenery to a three course dinner at the Twice Brewed Inn on Hadrian's Wall.  The evening includes a fascinating talk on astronomy, star gazing opportunities with the National Park's new Dobsonian 16" Telescope that enables you to peer deep into the Cosmos.  At the end of the night we'll drive you and your bike back to the Cycle Hub.

The ride will be run at a gentle pace and will have vehicle support, but you need to be confident of your ability of ride 40 miles, some of which will be hilly - hard on the way up but wild on the way down. More details.


There are all kinds of events to enjoy throughout the year. Visit the Events calendar and search page for more details.
