Coast & Castles
Easy - Moderate
Long distance cycling doesn't get much easier than this and it includes much sea and countryside. You're in and out of the coast right up to Berwick before turning west. Towards Kelso and Melrose poses no problems and then there's the rise from Innerleithen over the Moorfoot Hills with a long decline towards Gorebridge at the end. Finally, the approach to Edinburgh itself is very flat, using long sections of old railway tracks almost into the heart of Edinburgh itself.
