Tweed Cycle Route

About This Route

Starting at 650 ft above sea level in Biggar and finishing on the coast in Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Tweed Cycle Way is a waymarked cycle route, 95 miles long, running through the heart of the Scottish Borders with the River Tweed as its linking theme. It is an attractive route, avoiding busy roads almost entirely, with many fine hill and forest views and handsome towns along the way such as Peebles, Melrose, Kelso and Coldstream. The route is moderate, with a few steep sections. It is normally tackled in an easterly direction and will take 3-5 days to complete depending on your pace and where you may decide to stop along the way. Please note that this route can also be started in Carstairs which can be reached by train.
