The Bike

What is the Go Smarter bike park?

The Go Smarter Bike Park is one of five centres across Tyne and Wear, delivered by Sustrans, aimed at helping you to choose active, greener and healthier ways of travelling.

We're based in Temple Park, South Shields, NE34 8QN, where we'll be running many activities including:

  • led bike rides and walks
  • bike maintenance sessions
  • cycle skills training (including stabiliser - free)
  • cycle hire
  • bike buddies

If you're interested in walking or cycling, or if you want to come along and see what's going on, then we'd love to see you.

Project volunteers

We're also looking for people to help support the project and for volunteers to pass on their skills to other members of the community.
