Our promise to cyclists

Turn up on two wheels

Turn up on two wheels

We're serious about cycling here at the National Trust in the North East. And we just love seeing people turn up at our places on two wheels - it's great for the environment. To say thank you, we promise to look after your cycling needs. We have places to lock up your bike, we'll help out if you've got a puncture, and we'll even throw in a free cuppa if you're buying a meal or snack from us.

Great North Run

The Great North Run ends on The Leas, a fantastic stretch of coastline and a great place to end a race. But that's not the only race we're involved in.

Running groups

Running in a group can be good for keeping you motivated. At our regular running groups you can also see how your times improve each week.

Running routes

If you prefer to take your own pace on a solo run, have a look at our running routes. It's always better to be in beautiful surroundings, even if it's just for your weekly jog.
