Cycling news and events

Find the latest information about cycling events and activities in County Durham including the annual Tour Series race in Durham City in May.


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.

Riders from seven professional men's teams - Bike Channel Canyon, JLT Condor, Madison Genesis, Metaltek Kuota, MorvĂ©lo 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.
