The Twelve Border Rivers (110 miles)
This is a short day tour taking in some of the Borders most scenic valleys and rivers.
Starting from Melrose we pass through Selkirk and head west for Eskdalemuir following several of the Borders' and Dumfries and Galloway's picturesque valleys and rivers. We stop at the Samye Ling Buddhist Temple for refreshments and a leg stretch.
On now to Langholm then meander over the hills to Newcastleton, a planned village with a long wide street which belies its size and status!
The next main town is Jedburgh passing the Jed Water and, if time permits we may have another refreshment stop and leg stretch at Bongate Bikes.
The closing part of the tour continues north, crossing the River Teviot, and we make our way back to Melrose.
