The Half Nelson

106km cycling event starting from Ponteland. Controls at Nelsons, Swarland, plus 3 information controls.

An ideal first Audax or for those looking for something a little easier than The Full Nelson.

A relatively flat start for the first 40km (25 miles) across the Northumberland Coastal Plain, then a steady climb to Nelsons at Swarland. The middle section is undulating but most of the climbing is gradual. The last 20km is mainly gradually downhill back to Ponteland. Entries for this event are limited and may close before the closing date. If entries are not full at the closing date there may only be a limited number of late entries available if any. If you intend to enter and ride this event then early entry is encouraged to secure a place. Facebook Page 'Tyneside Vagabonds Audax Events'.
