    Your final day adventure is filled with coastal scenes as you ride the last 34.4 miles (55.5 km) from Seaham back to the start in Middlesbrough. From Seaham, climb inland along the Hart to Haswell Walkway. The trail will take you through peaceful countryside scenes and into Shotton Colliery that you will recognise from stage 1. On the outskirts of Wingate, veer left and enjoy open skies and fields as you descend back to the sea at Hartlepool. Dating back to the 7th century, Hartlepool is a town with a lot of history. It’s worth visiting the Museum of Hartlepool to learn more about its past. The marina is a lovely place to stop for a coffee or lunch before continuing your journey along the coast. Follow the glistening sea as Hartlepool merges into Seaton Carew, a village with a wonderful beach attached to the Teesmouth National Nature Reserve. With the call of gulls above, you can explore secluded sand dunes and wildlife habitats. In summer, you may even spot seals who come to the sands to have their pups. The final leg is a flat ride up the mouth of the Tees, passing through Saltholme RSPB reserve and heading into Middlesbrough, completing the loop of the Three Rivers. Middlesbrough has a range of shops, cafes, pubs, and parks where you can celebrate the completion of your adventure. To return home, you can hop on a train to Newcastle which has direct links to loads of cities across the UK. Middlesbrough also has direct connections to York, Nunthorpe, and Bishop Auckland.
