Border Country Cycle Routes Cicerone Guide Book
The Border Country Cycle Routes Cicerone Guide Book is a guide to cycling in SE Scotland and NE England in the Northumberland National Park and the Southern Uplands.
The 40 circular cycle routes vary in length from 15 to well over 40 miles.
Most have off-road sections, and they vary in difficulty from easy to more demanding mountain routes. They offer a blend of isolation and charm.
The 40 routes (both sides of the border) include Roslin, Coldingham, Lammermuirs, Lindisfarne, Grey Mare’s Tail, Amble, Keilder, Newcastleton, Langholm, Vindolanda, Beamish and Deerness Valley.
John Brewer has lived and worked in the Scottish Borders for over 20 years. He has a passion for mountains and remote places, and has walked and climbed in many of the major European ranges and also in North Africa and the Canadian Rockies and Pacific Northwest of the USA.
Seeing the potential of modern mountain bikes to access more remote places and efficiently over long distances, John created the www.bikeroutes.org.uk website, in which he sets out to describe and map cycle routes in southeast Scotland and northeast England. The routes range from the more leisurely to the more demanding, and, in fact, this guide grew out of his search for more offbeat trails in the area.
