Stage distance 25 miles
Total distance 62 miles. Although ride is a fair distance with it's Grade 2 category the pace will be moderate.
In the event of extremely wet or exceptionally windy weather, there is not much scope to shorten the route to Dumfries ( except on unpleasant main roads ). After 11’s a shorter return to Annan could be taken by travelling east , SE and then SW back to Annan.
I hope to see some of you at the start and that we are able to do the full ride.
