Stanley Town Council is putting on the event on Sunday, May 1, with help from

It is being organised to celebrate the opening of a new link route from the C2C route into Stanley town centre.

Councillor Joan Nicholson, chairman of Stanley Town Council, said: “It is a wonderful facility which should be used as much as possible.

“Our event will only use a small part that is close to the town but the route is such a wonderful ‘highway’ to some of the best countryside around.

“We want to get people of all ages out on their bikes and use the routes and get a little fitter into the bargain. It is a ‘win-win’ situation for all concerned.”

Both routes start and finish at Oakies Park, with a 20 mile ride to Cox Green, just outside of Sunderland and a shorter one for youngsters to Beamish Museum car park.

Gina Clarke, network manager for Sustrans, said: “We are looking forward to the event bringing new people to the C2C, giving the next generation of cyclists the opportunity to experience the route for themselves.”

All finishers get a t-shirt and goodie bag. For more information search for Stanley Family Cycle on Facebook.
