  • Appreciate it's not the direction you're setting off in, but if you find yourself with spare time or want additional miles, the ride between Edinburgh and Peebles (particularly the final 20 miles) is one of the loveliest bits of cycling I've done. The downhill to Innerleithen is spectacular, then 8 miles on a beautiful new bike path alongside the Tweed.

  • Open to any advice offered - however, I've actually been to Peebles and cycled around there before (mountain biking, though). The roads were pristine.

  • Ah yeah, Glentress and the Gypsy Glen are seriously special mountain biking areas. If you find yourself heading that way again, definitely worth trying the route I linked to. Enjoy this trip, it looks incredible! Planning LEJOG for August and looking for recommendations for roads/routes myself, might have to put a shout out.
