Back on the bike today. Nice and dry day for once, except for a heavy shower on top of the North York Moors. We stuck closely to the planned route, passing through Newcastle, over the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, past the Angel of the North sculpture, over various County Durham hills, through Durham itself, and through Sedgefield to Stockton and its brand new Infinity Bridge.

148km in 6h46 + ~2h20 stopping time.
Whitby is absolutely lovely. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
