Starting at Currie Road car park in Galashiels, we'll head up the Langshaw road to Wooplaw where we turn right at the crossroads to Bluecairn and on to the T junction just south of South Blainslie. At the T junction we turn right and follow the road to Clatteringford Bridge where we turn left to Earlston. At the crossroads on the A68 we go straight over and take second right on the B6356 to Redpath. At Redpath we fork right and follow the unclassified road through to the T junction with the Leaderfoot road. We turn right down Leaderfoot Hill crossing over the hump back bridge before turning left onto the cycle path under the road bridge. We take the old road past the Trimontium to Newstead and on into Melrose for lunch. If required we can stop for a coffee and snack at the Rhymers Cafe in Earlston. From Melrose we pick up the cycle path back to Galashiels.

The route will pass under Leaderfoot Viaduct and up past the Trimontium where you have spectacular views of the viaduct and River Tweed

The route is fairly hilly, covering some nice unclassified roads, quiet B roads and cycle paths.

We will call in a The Rhymer's Cafe for coffee, cake and a blether

I would always recommend the wearing of helmets. Bring some food and water with you for this more challenging route. A small rear light (in case of inclement weather) and puncture repair kit is also recommended for the ride

We never leave anyone behind
