BORDERS BRAKE-AWAY CYCLE GROUP

2019 programme – updated 11/04/2019

 

We have been organising leisurely and sociable cycle rides across the Scottish Borders and further afield since 2004. Mileage varies from 30 to 55+ miles using quiet roads or good tracks whenever possible. Average pace is 10-11mph so no-one gets left behind and we have time to enjoy the scenery and company. There's usually a cafe for coffee or lunch. Lycra is not essential and most bike types are suitable.

All rides/dates below are provisional and subject to confirmation; details of these & any extra rides will be sent out a few days beforehand.

 

We are an Informal Group of Cycling UK (formerly CTC); non-members are welcome on the rides, but if you enjoy it enough to be a regular rider, we encourage you to join Cycling UK.
