We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Great family friendly route with great views along the Tyne.
Pub based facilities at middle and both ends.
Easily extended to Newcastle or South Shields from either end of the walk.
Could even extend to Tynemouth catching ferry back to start.

This is a good route. Mostly tarmac paths which are well signed as a cycleway.

GatesHeb one starts with a steep downhill through Gateshead centre. After this is relatively flat until a shallow rise at the end towards Hebburn. Follows a cycle route throughout with some short road sections along pavement.

Most of the route is along the river through trees and parks, with good views over the Tyne. Beginning and end sections are more urban and also pass through industrial estates. Easy access to pubs directly on route including The Wardley in Bill Quay.

Cracked and poorly maintained sections of cycle path would make this difficult but not impossible with a wheelchair. It would still be quite managable with a buggy.

Modifications (see photos):
1. Where the route tells you to head left towards river beneath a metal yellow arch, this is a dead end. Instead follow the cycle path signs on the right.
2. At path junction by lamppost, you can take the left fork, but it becomes much steeper and not buggy/wheelchair accessible.
3. A short diversion off the riverside path at Pelaw takes you through Bill Quay Community farm and see the pigs, sheep and goats.
4. Multiple options towards the end for footpaths through Riverside Park are all usable.
