This route is classic 140km from Edinburgh, over the Lang Whang (usually a head wind) then winding its way into the beautiful Borders via Innerleithen.
If a cafe stop is required No.1 Innerleithen is a must for Steam Punk Coffee and a wicked Haloumi Wrap. Then it is back over the Granits Climb (another Tour of Britain and Women's Tour of Scotland classic) with some Mid Lothian lanes and bergs to finish. If your legs are still fresh Roslyn Glen's 16% might help squeeze out the last watts.
