Active Sunderland BIG Bike Ride

The Active Sunderland BIG Bike Ride, a staple of the city's cycling calendar, is back for 2024... and we have a brand new beginner ride, bike hire and more!

Take the family on a 5 mile traffic free led ride, conquer a 12-mile adventure, stretch your legs on the 20-miler or challenge yourself to the 38-mile route (approx route distances).

After setting off from Beacon of Light (next to the Stadium of Light) you will cycle through a mixture of city roads and woodland paths before heading for the euphoria of crossing the finish line having completed one epic ride!

Our rides are fully supported with clearly signed routes, marshals, first aid cover, bike mechanics and pick-up vehicles.

Entry is still just £20 for a group of 4 (max 2 adults), £10 per adult (or £7 if you prefer not to have a T-shirt) and £5 for under 18s.
All riders under 16 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

All entries will receive a finisher medal.

Enter by clicking 'Book Now' at the top of this page and join us on Sunday 14 July for an awesome day of cycling.

Full route information will be available soon.

All participants must wear a suitable helmet for the duration of the ride regardless of experience and ability. 

Helmets will be available to loan on the day if you do not have one.
