The first of two day rides across south-east Scotland - come along for either or make a weekend of it and join us for both!

Day 1 will actually start off in Dumfries and Galloway, from the market town of Lockerbie. We'll head north-east through the Eskdalemuir, Craik and Ettrick Forests towards the border towns of Selkirk and Galashiels.

Day 2 will cover 45 miles from Tweedbank to Berwick - please sign up separately for this and book your own B&B accommodation in Galashiels for the Saturday evening.

This route will be mostly on B-roads and will take us through some quite remote countryside. For those who missed our ride in this area last year, there may be another opportunity to drop in at the Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre near Eskdalemuir and we'll probably stop for lunch at Tushielaw Inn, an eighteenth century coaching house in the middle of a largely uninhabited area.

A map showing the route for this ride can be found here.

The ride will be around 80km climbing in the middle to around 350m. We will finish the ride near Tweedbank railway station for those who wish to return home on the Saturday evening.
