You can see that they must have made some changes since the waypoints I was using had been posted because my route is north of what was in my GPS. Not to worry, it was well marked. The only untoward thing which happened was that someone, I suspect kids, dropped something off a bridge and it bounced off my handlebars. No damage.

Didn't take any still photos but here are the videos including the last of the Rookhope to Chester-le-Street and those of the last leg, Chester-le-Street to Sunderland. The last is a ride along the Sunderland seaside.
Had a lovely pasta dinner with wine last night. I'm about to go down for breakfast after which I'll tag the bicycle, check out, and make my way to Newcastle. Went for a walk to the Metro station last evening.
