WITH THE KIDS
Rally the troops, grab some wheels from The Cycle Hub, Newcastle, and take off on a family bike ride around the Quayside. When you’re done, return to the Hub to join its Saturday Breakfast Club. Think bacon sarnies, Belgian waffles and avo on toast, washed down with hot drinks or juice, for a fiver.
