Club ride from Longtown, Sunday 5th March

Meet in Longtown outside the Sycamore Café at 9.30. Elevenses at Langholm then ride up A7 (quiet on a Sunday) and cut across east on a beautiful, wild road past Hermitage Castle. Then back down to Newcastleton for a late lunch, returning to Longtown on undulating route. Bulk of the mileage will be in the morning, undulating, quite hilly route, a couple of longish climbs but well-graded and well worth it for the views!
50 - 55 miles. Steady "touring" pace - estimated 11-12 mph average (unless we get a ripping tailwind!) Hope to see you there for a good day out.
