👀 Innerleithen is home to one of the longest continuous single track descents in the UK. There are stunning view to be had over the surrounding countryside, but the fast, flowing track down the mountain is the real reward. There are significant drop offs and jumps on this red-graded route (it is possible to avoid them), and the optional black section will test veteran downhill riders (I will be giving it a miss).

↔️ At 19 km, this is not an especially long ride, but the ascent to the top is no walk in the park. Given the extreme nature of this ride it is only suitable for experienced mountain bikers on good-quality mountain bikes

🚲 There are a number of bike hire places, for example Alpine. Early bookings are recommended.
