National Student Rodeo

The National Student Rodeo 2019 begins in just over week. This huge annual event takes place each March in Nottingham in the UK. Last year the event was cancelled due to some horrendous weather conditions here in the UK. The year before that the water quality on the whitewater course wasn’t good enough so the event was pushed onto the flat water lake near by. This year it will hopefully be good water and blue skies.

Are You Off To The Tyne Tour?

The Tyne Tour is one of the best kayak/canoe events in the UK. Since its origins as the Mike Jones Rally the Tyne tour has become a firm favourite of mine. Most paddlers will stick to the area around Hexham and Tyne Green but there are several other stretches of water in the local area that are worth looking at. This post is not designed to be a definitive guide in any way but is intend to offer a few ideas so you can maximise your paddle time and choice if attending the tour. So here we have it The Tyne Tour – A Brief Water Guide.

Camping, food and retailers are all based at Tyne Green right on the river bank in Hexham. Hexham is large market town so there are plenty of shops, pubs and takeaways if required.

The main river for the tour is the North Tyne. Local canoe/kayak clubs provide safety cover on the largest whitewater section of the North Tyne at Rescue Rock. Each Saturday of the Tyne Tour you will find me sat on Rescue Rock taking thousands of still images.
