Great reading/sitting nook on Roker seafront.

Old railway bridge (condemned) over National Cycle Network path, Route 1.

Cycle lane used as car park in Sunderland. Because why not.

1940s Bus Stop Bypass, A690 Sunderland

End of shared path

Cycleway road crossing on Cherry Blossom way.

Permissive path between for/cycle bridge and turbine business park

Bus stop bypass on cycleway alongside Paddington road in Washington

Foot/cycle bridge over A1231 in Washington. Narrow track on right is C2C

Wide shared path alongside Cherry Blossom Way in Washington. Massive concrete blocks are to prevent trucks parking

Poorly-looking toucan crossing and ironwork at cycle path road crossing outside South Hylton metro station.

Cycle path to Pallion next to South Hylton station, with side paths signed as 'No Cycling'.

The Sunderland end of the C2C

A nice hard surface along here

Running alongside the River Wear, towards the coast
