Epic day's riding. The full day (Inners - Selkirk - Inners) is definitely too much for the national (35 miles and 4900 ft climbing, although we may have taken a wrong turn or two), but we all agreed it was still a superb day out. Once we got out onto the hills, the mix of natural riding reminded me of one of our highland jaunts, so getting that down in the borders is really a bonus.

I think we have a route that fits the bill for the national - 20-25 miles (still need to do the GPS sums) where we get most of the good riding, superb views for the lunch break stop, and ending with the full Minch Moor Inners Red descent.

Does this link work? Apologies for not editing the bunch, it was easier to upload everything. If there are any pics that jump out please post them, we need a couple of the ad for the ride.

Great pics , looks like a real xc ride. Looking forward to the route for the national.

Hope we get started nice and sharp and not so much hanging about as last year as I need to bail out about 2pm to rush back to work :cry:
