Starting point


This is the 30 mile route for the sportive, called 'The Recce'.

If you can arrive at the Priory for about 7.30am, that will give you time to register, go to the toilet, etc, and hopefully we will be able to leave as a group at about 8am.

The Cross Border Sportive is a non-competitive cycling event.

Road, but mostly quiet, some hills, quite a few cyclists!

There will be a food stop en route - please make sure that you bring a drink (you will be able to top up bottles at the food stop), and some emergency snacks. From memory it is quite likely that we will be able to purchase a hot drink and a bacon butty at the end of the ride :-)

Watch the weather, and make sure that you are suitably dressed. Cycle helmets are needed. Please make sure that you bring a spare inner tyre with you, just in case!
