Cycling the Borders

The Borderlands of North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders are a wonderful place to cycle and soak up the history and beautiful countryside in both Scotland and England. The not too hilly terrain and views of rivers, castles and picturesque villages adds to the tranquility of the area.

Below are some of the cycles rides that we enjoy. I have added some photographs from along the route. You can view All Cycles or individual routes listed below. The timings are approximate, based on standard mountain bikes and will differ slightly depending on the bicycle you have. I have also included links to other cycle routes in the Borders.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
