Head from Sunderland, 167 to Sniperly P&R..along to Lanchester,up Maiden Law bank( nice and tough) join A693 towards Consett, Delves lane back into Lanchester.Back through Durham and to Sunderland along 690 and up Houghton cut..
About 52 miles from home and back.
Lots of options around bearpark/meadowfield/Langley Pk/Crook way and plenty of climbing etc
