Tour du Nord - Stage 4
Stage Start: 09:00: The Glen Hotel, Selkirk, TD7 5AS. BNG NT 463 284
The final stage is another long day covering 97 miles and includes 5331' of ascent. Leaving Selkirk we head initially South-Eastwards to climb to the Scotland-England border at the summit of Carter Bar. From here we retrace our steps very briefy before turning East into the heart of the Cheviot Hills through some truly beautiful countryside on quiet almost traffic free roads. Skirting the Cheviot Hills we pass through Wooler and head towards the coast at Bamburgh before turning South for the final run towards the finish at Alnmouth completing our second coast to coast crossing, and our 400 mile journey.
