Went solo on the first Ride Along, what an awesome day! The food was amazing, and the route chosen really highlighted a less travelled, locals perspective of Newcastle I hadn't seen before. Can't recommend highly enough, get on the bike with Ben next time you're in Newy!

Having travelled from Sydney to explore Newcastle should be on anyone’s wish list & to do so through Newy Rides - Ride Along series is most recommended. We were greeted by Ben (the informative host), who instantly made us feel comfortable introducing us to the delights of Newcastle & new friends whom we shared the tour with. Having not ridden a bike in years, we were allocated our road-worthy bikes, some of us with battery powered (thanks for that assistance) & set on our way. The bike tracks in Newcastle are easy to get around & quite stunning. There wasn’t a moment I wasn’t uncomfortable & for the not so confident bike rider, this is saying something. As for the culinary delights, the food was exceptional & also supplied with our dietary requirements. The picturesque lunch stop, unique wine tasting & the gin tour were also highlights. Would I do this again… Absolutely! Thanks Newy rides - we loved it.

Seeing newcastle by bicycle allowed me to see areas I would never have visited before. Ben the host was fantastic, his enthusiasm was infectious which added so much to the trip and he was incredibly well read around about the history of the area. A lot of fun was had by all, the stops were amazing taking in places i wouldn't have visited previously and will definitely take friends and family to these parts of Newcastle and not just the beach. this is an absolute must for not only tourists but also every novocastrian.

Ben is super enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of Newcastle. This was a surprise birthday gift and we loved it. Included some history, sightseeing, local wine and gin stops, and a ‘low and slow’ brisket for lunch. Highly recommend this to tourists and locals alike.
