The Cycle Hub is situated beside the River Tyne a few hundred metres from the Blinking Eye / Millennium Bridge (if heading eastwards) and is the perfect place to stop for lunch or a final re-fuelling before the last miles of the C2C if heading to Tynemouth. It provides bike hire for the route and has a workshop too should your bike be in need of some TLC, or just the tyres pumping up! It is also home to Saddle Skedaddle Cycling Holidays who provide lots of trip packages and support options along the route. This is a great pit stop and a real hub for the local cycling scene.
