Northumberland has again been selected to host a stage of the Tour of Britain Cycle Race.

Do you remember 2015? Well they’re coming back. Cyclists competing in Stage 6 – Carlisle to Gateshead will be cycling through Riding Mill on the afternoon of Friday 10th September. The village put on a fantastic display in 2015 – can you help us do it again this year?

Help decorate the Main Road with bunting and flags or perhaps an old bicycle which you could paint red and yellow – the colours of the Northumberland flag.

Further information about the timing of the race will be circulated later.
