There are a number of disruptions to Council services because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please check the link below before accessing any of our services.

We're keen to support cycling in the borough and we are committed to delivering and maintaining a safe cycle network. Not only is cycling a cost effective alternative for many short car journeys, it can also improve your health, reduces congestion, improves air quality, and is great fun.

Plan a cycle route

Cyclestreets can help you plan a cycle route depending on the type of journey you want. Select quiet roads if you're not confident on two wheels, the quickest route if your against the clock or most recreational if you want to see the sights.

A route to 5 of the Borough's parks

Cyclists and walkers looking for a scenic route to enjoy can now take in five of Stocktonon-Tees’ much loved parks after a new cycle route connecting Thorpe Thewles and Wynyard Woodland Park has been completed.

It means people can follow a fantastic, largely off-road 11 mile trail stretching from Ingleby Barwick to the Borough boundary at Wynyard.

The route takes in Romano Park in Ingleby Barwick, Preston Park, Six Fields in Hartburn and onto Wynyard Woodland Park. It also runs close to Ropner Park. Each park has lots to offer – from stunning scenery and peaceful places to enjoy wildlife to playgrounds for children to enjoy.

New signage installed along the route between Hardwick and Wynyard Woodland Park will help keep cyclists and walkers on the right track.

The new cycle link, which forms part of National Cycle Network Route 1, has been funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, through the Rural Development Programme for England.

 

Cycle Events

We also host a series of cycling events including Stockton Duathlon in April and Stockton Cycling Festival in July. Take a look at our events website for all the latest cycling events.
