Welcome to The Rotary Club of Consett’s first cycle ride in aid of Rotary Charities.

Cyclists of all ages are invited to take part in a pleasant ride from Lanchester to Park Head Station using the dedicated cycle paths all the way.

Entry to the ride will cost £5.00 per person and the proceeds will be directed through Rotary to local charities such as Willowburn and Mind.


It is recommended that all cyclist wear a helmet and mitts. The route will take cyclists out of Lanchester on the sustrans track starting at the Ford Road junction. It is a direct route to the Lygetts junction where the route turns left on to the Waskerley Way. Once again straight on up to Park Head Station.

Refreshments can be bought at the cafe from Terry and Lorraine. Then you return the way you came. There will be check points along the way to keep track of cyclists and on completion you will receive a certificate to show to sponsors.

It is important to register at the start of the bike ride and leave a mobile telephone number in the event of an emergency.

You should also check that your cycle is in good working order before the event as there will be no mechanics available on the day.

Cyclists will be set off in groups of about 6 riders to prevent overcrowding on the track.

Good luck and enjoy the ride!
