Poppy Short Route – 45 miles

Perfect for the 1st time Sportive rider. Follow the beautiful and famous East Lothian Golf Coast Road and then into the hills via Gifford to test the legs.
Generally downhill from here back to the coast at Longniddry and to the finish.

Poppy Middle Route – 66 miles

A fairly tough ride awaits you after the flat ride out to North Berwick. Things kick upwards with a long climb up into the Lammermuirs and over the infamous ‘Rigg’. But then it’s pretty much downhill all the way back but with a couple of ‘testers’ on the way.

Poppy Long Route – 100 miles

A truly epic day in the saddle awaits after the flat ride out to North Berwick.  Up and over the Lammermuirs and down onto the delightfully quiet roads of the Scottish Borders.  Loop round by Chirnside before refuelling at Duns for the long haul back over the hills into East Lothian.
