Annan and Alston

206km cycling event starting from Hallbankgate. Controls at Annan, Dalston and Alston, plus 4 information controls.

From Hallbankgate the route goes over the Border to Annan then a loop around the Solway Firth to Bowness on Solway before crossing the Eden Valley via Culgaith to Alston and the to the finish at Hallbankgate.

The route is on relatively flat quick roads for most of the way. There is of course the minor matter of the 8km climb from Melmerby to the top of Hartside which is the only significant climb on the route. From the top of Hartside it's a relatively easy run in to the finish at Hallbankgate. Start in the community café and finish in the pub. Something to eat at the finish included in your entry fee
