- natural ride from Innerleithen?
I'm planning a trip to Inners and GT, I want to mix up the trail centre stuff with a natural ride. Can anyone point me to a resource for a suggested route? I have an old article from MBR but it just lists place names, I'm after a route map or something ideally
thanks in advance!Posted 10 years ago
Gypsy Glen or the Southern upland Way would fit your bill.
When are you up, the best resource would be a local with knowledge?Posted 10 years ago
thanks, not up until June! just wishing the winter months away…Posted 10 years ago
Yep, there is plenty in the gap between Inners and Selkirk that the Merida marathon uses. When you do the red at Inners and reach the high spot on the top of Minch Moor join the Southern Upland way and head up towards the 3 Bretheren etc. Views can be awesome on a good day!Posted 10 years ago
Gypsy Glen is a nice ride – there are variations on the route here is one http://www.mtb-borders.com/gypsy_glen.html
I usually do the climb thru cardrona forest ( a bit to the west of the marked route on this map) and don't bother with the stuff north of the road. I can give you a memory map of the route I take if its any use.Posted 10 years ago
Email me and I'll send you a few decent routes around Innerleithen and Peebles.
Live locally so can give you some other info if required

that's genius, thanks everyone, and especially tandemjerry for the map. Will decline the multimap though thanks, I'm still working from paperPosted 10 years ago
This page from an earlier thread has a great gps-on-OS Map courtesy of HouseHusband, 2/3 of the way down – think it's the same route as TJ's; Gypsy Glen being the section on the south of the river.Posted 10 years ago

I hope your wife rides bikes otherwise it could be a short marriage!Posted 10 years ago

Peebles to St Marys' Loch (cafe/inn at the bottom) across the old drove road, and then back on the Southern Upland Way is a good day out.
Minch Moor to the 3 Breathern is good.Posted 10 years ago
My prefered variation on Three Bretheren is to take the back road, then cycle track along to pick up the SUW at Yair House and to follow that back to the top of Minch Moor and the xc route home.Posted 10 years ago
The Innerleithen, "Glen", Stake Law and Gypsyglen one is dead pretty, but involves some pushing.
