Debatable Lands

Description

200km cycling event starting from Hawick. Controls at Newcastleton, Chollerford, Waterside, Kielder and Hawick., plus 2 information controls.

A circular route mainly on quiet country roads through the southern Scottish Borders and the Northumberland National Park.

The ride snakes south through rolling Border countryside and over the border into Northumberland to pick up the Roman road at Greenhead. Travelling west to east, following Hadrian's Wall with several small climbs, we would hope to have the wind on our backs taking us onwards to Chollerford where there is a excellent cafe stop. The route then heads back towards the Scottish Borders passing through the forested hills of the Northumberland National Park and along the side of Kielder reservoir. With a checkpoint at Waterside there is a chance to refuel and then onward through Bedrule to Hawick. With plenty of opportunities for other café stops on route this has the making of a pleasant midsummer day out in the beautiful border countryside between Scotland and England.
