Heriot and Borders Cycle
3 people attending
7 places left
A chance to venture into the Borders and get away from the madding crowd. Come on a road less travelled for a good challenging long ride for the day...
Come and see some views from the hills and valleys...No one will be left behind and we aim to make everyone feel included.
The route can be seen on Strava, where the GPX file for cycle computers can be downloaded.
