Follow National Cycle route 1 and the River Tweed from Northumberland in England into the Scottish borders.
The ride starts near the train station in Berwick-upon-Tweed and heads west along the River Tweed to Kelso, with the crossing of the Union suspension bridge at Horncliffe a highlight. You continue onto the lovely village of Dryburgh in the Scottish borders. Sitting on the river Tweed it is home to the 12th century Dryburgh Abbey which is certainly worth stopping to view.
A short on road section finishes the ride taking you into Melrose, where you finish near Melrose Abbey.
