Cycle Steps
1. Starting out at South Hylton Riverside, head up Hylton bank for South Hylton Metro Station. Turn onto the cycle track running parallel to the metro line and follow until it joins at the roundabout on European Way. Continue straight ahead into Sunderland city centre. Cross the Wear at Wearmouth Bridge and turn right onto Dame Dorothy Street. Follow until it meets up with the seafront road. Now it's a simple ride all the way up the coast to South Shields. Retrace your steps on the way back, but turn off Dame Dorothy Street going under the metro line and loop around the back of the Stadium Light. Connect with Keir Hardie Way and follow and cross over the Wear at Queen Alexandra Bridge. Again, now a case of retracing steps.
