Cycle description:
We'll meet at Commonweath Pool at 9.30 We will head down to Tweedbank via Temple and Innerleithen stopping for lunch on the way. We will catch the train from Tweedbank back to Edinburgh. Distance 50 miles.
The majority of the route is on quiet roads or cycle paths, although we will need to cycle on some busier roads. Some of the tracks are uneven and are better suited to semi-slick cycling tyres.
Duration: 8 hours

What will I need?

Adapted for the weather conditions this is the basic kit. Always bring a waterproof even in the Summer as you just never know!

Your Safety and Responsibilities
Unfortunately cycling like many sports and road use involves a risk of accidents leading to personal injury, and in extreme cases death. By participating in these activities you should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for your own actions and involvement.
The cycle organisers are volunteers, who try to encourage the enjoyment of the cycle ride by all participants. They may help by sharing their experience … but the onus of responsibility for deciding whether or not to follow their route and rely on any advice lies with you. You are responsible for your own decisions and safety, and neither the cycle organisers, nor any other people associated with Sunday Brunch Club accepts legal responsibility for your welfare on the cycle.
