Tour of Britain comes to Blyth
September 4th 2017
The UK's largest professional cycling race is coming to Blyth on Monday 4th September 2017.
Northumberland is to host an entire stage of the race, starting in Kielder and finishing in Blyth.
While the exact route through Northumberland, on day two of the major sporting spectacle, is yet been announced, The Commissioners's Quay Inn will be the place to eat, drink and stay to take in the country's largest free-to-spectate sporting event.
It attracts over a million spectators to the roadside each year, with many hundreds of thousands more following via television and online around the world.
Each year The Tour attracts some of the world's top cyclists to compete on British roads, including home favourites like Mark Cavendish, Geraint Thomas, Ed Clancy and Sir Bradley Wiggins having all taken part previously.
