The Scottish Borders will offer cyclists a great welcome. Some of our towns, villages and communities are doing even more to welcome you.
Kelso is well situated on a number of our key long distance cycle routes such as the 4 Abbeys, the Borderloop, Coast & Castles and the Tweed Valley route. There are also a number of shorter routes to explore the area around the town. There are many businesses who welcome cyclists whether they are staying over or just popping by for a cake and coffee stop to re-fuel. You will find listings of these cycle friendly businesses on this site.
Ale Water Valley has some wonderful cycling routes on offer and businesses who are looking forward to welcoming you to stay, eat or visit. They can top up your water bottles and if you get stuck someone will no doubt have a spare puncture repair kit under a counter to help you get back on your way.
