80 Km of cycling with one very difficult climb ( total ascent 1000m)

A circular cycle in the Scottish Borders from Peebles.

Starting in the Borders town of Peebles, the route will travel mainly over quiet back roads, and climb several stiff hills along the way. One being the Wall of Talla!

Around 36Km into this event we shall reach the Wall of Talla, a very steep climb taking us up to a maximum height of 455m. The gradient can reach 20% in places.

Challenging but rewarding, the route will feature some amazing natural scenery – what better way to take your mind off your efforts than by enjoying this beautiful part of Scotland.
