The OVO Energy Tour of Britain will return to
Northumberland this September as Stage Two of Britain’s premier road cycling
event takes place in the county on Monday 4 September.
The stage will see 120 of the world’s top cyclists racing from Kielder Water and Forest Park to Blyth, building on the success of the 2015 race when two stages visited Northumberland for the first time ever.
At just over 211-kilometres the Northumberland stage will be the longest of the 2017 Tour, and also include a finishing loop, giving spectators at the Blyth finish the chance to see the race twice.
The route will also take in the likes of Rothbury, Alnwick, Bamburgh and Morpeth plus the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Included below is the ETA schedule for when they will pass through Morpeth.
