Find the latest information about cycling events and activities in County Durham including the annual Tour Series race in Durham City in May.
UniCycle is a cycling campaign for students at Durham University to help raise awareness for cyclists 'to be seen and be safe' and also having fun whilst cycling. As part of the campaign there will be a free Get back on your bike with new cycling sessions on Thursday 23 November 2017 at St. Mary's College, which will include stalls, freebies, free bike security marking and a ghost walk.
National Cycling Network route 14
The National Cycling Network route 14 alongside the River Wear between Baths Bridge and Old Durham has now reopened. The new wider tarmac surface means it is a viable route for those commuting across the city. The path continues to be shared with pedestrians and care should be taken of other people using the path.
The Tour Series - which is organised by the team behind the Tour of Britain - is a unique team-based, televised series of city centre cycle races. Durham City played host to the ninth round.
Riders from seven professional men's teams - Bike Channel Canyon, JLT Condor, Madison Genesis, Metaltek Kuota, Morvélo Basso, ONE Pro Cycling and Team Raleigh GAC - battled it out over the course of ten rounds, with Durham welcoming the second to last race, just two days before the end of the season.
