Rule 1: Don't be a dick. Rule 2: Refer to Rule 1 at all times. Respect the Beastie.

Unofficial Point to Point route taking in some of the best, and most technical singletrack of the Tweed Valley from Selkirk all the way up to Peebles. 7 different riding zones are passed through and everything from singletrack climbs to technical downhills and exposed to the weather hill path. This is not an easy route and a considerable challenge to complete. You must be prepared for over 10 hours in the saddle. Easy pull out points at Walkerburn, Innerleithen and Peebles. Trails on this route are unofficial and this route is not official either, it's just a fun challenge and incredible tour of this wonderful area. Don't spoil it by racing, littering or being disrespectful out there. Be nice to fellow trail users and obey any signs from land owners you see along the way.

This route is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
