Merse and Moors

300km cycling event starting from Musselburgh. Controls at Innerleithen, Elsdon, Alnwick and Duns, plus 1 information control.

A ride with lovely scenery and with four summits over 400m provides a challenging and rewarding day out. Free food and drink at the start and finish.

Ride down through the Borders to cross into England at Carter Bar followed by a loop through Northumberland. Return via Berwickshire and East Lothian. Mostly on B and minor roads. Food/drink provided at start and finish. This is the new route as trialed very successfully in 2016 with less climbing in Northumberland but more climbing on the way back from Duns.
