Cycling Development in Scotland

SCOTLAND_DEVELOPMENT

Scotland is naturally built for cycling and trail riding; known for some of the best forest trails in the UK.   We've already offered multiple events that bring International presence including: Tour of Britain, Tour O' the Borders and for the first time ever -  Kinlochleven Enduro is being recognised as a qualifying event for EWS!  These events are for sure putting Scotland on  the map.

Local authorities have implemented a 5 year plan which aims to make Scotland a recognised destination as one of the UK's premier cycling experiences.  In order to make sure this is successful major quality management checks will take place; from route development and signage to market research to identify economic and value specific to  the Borders - this will identify relevant cycling data, generating meaningful data to produce incredible project results.

£50,000 has been allocated to help promote the Scottish Borders as a host for new National and International cycling series.  Keep your eyes peeled on social media too!  This is all part of the growth plan; updated photography to show each cycle region.

So far cycling at the Borders includes:

A 250 mile Borderloop

A 55 mile route linking four abbeys

The Coast and Castles Route through Berwickshire

The Southern Borders Loop (linking Hawick and Newcastleton)

It also has a wide range of shorter trails as well as world-class mountain biking with the 7stanes at Glentress, Innerleithen and Newcastleton.
