Stage three of the 2019 OVO Energy Tour of Britain was completed on Monday 9th September and was the first to link all areas of the North of Tyne Combined Authority, with the route taking in Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle Upon Tyne.
The stage started from the centre of Berwick-upon-Tweed, crossing the Grade I listed Berwick Bridge as the race headed along the Tweed Valley and onto Ford and Wooler. The route raced along the Northumberland Coast, passing Bamburgh and Warkworth castles, showcasing the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
After passing through Whitley Bay, Tynemouth, North Shields and Wallsend, the final kilometres headed alongside the banks of the River Tyne on the Quayside, before turning on to Grey Street for a spectacular uphill city centre finish.
