SCOTTISH WANDERER SPORTIVE

This stunning sportive centred around the market town of Kelso is not one to miss. Kelso is a border town and when you Think of the Scottish Borders you think of big open spaces, heather-clad hills, hundreds of square miles of forests and woodland, lochs and rivers and idyllic roads for cyclists making the perfect place for the Scottish Wanderer.

You will start off by following the river Tweed and cross the river at the town of Coldstream the course is a circular route where you will pass through neighboring villages of Swintonmill, Leitholm, Eccles, Hume, Fans, Smailholm, Makertoun before arriving back at the showground to finish.
