7th Annual Tyne Cruise
Sunday 13th August

This river side bike ride departs the Schooner at 11am after a bacon or sausage sandwich. Please arrive at 10.30am for registration.
The ride takes us to some of the river Tyne’s best pubs stopping for plenty of refreshments travelling to Wylam and back.
Then late afternoon The Gaslighters will be playing in our outside stage. Have a listen while you park your bike up for another beer and a burger from the BBQ.
All this is in aid of the well known charities – Daft as a Brush, Cancer Care and The Alzheimer’s Society.
