Southern Borders Loop 2 – 75 miles
About This Route
The Southern Borders Loop offers two options for cyclists. The shorter route is moderate and can easily be completed in a day. The larger circuit is hard (suitable for more experienced cyclists) with 5 significant climbs over 300m. The shorter 50 mile route is best undertaken in a clockwise direction and can be started from either Newcastleton or Hawick. The longer 75 mile loop is best cycled anti-clockwise and could be broken with an overnight stay in Newcastleton, Hawick or Langholm depending upon the starting location.
