This 14.5 mile route from Hawick heads in a loop towards Denholm before returning to Hawick.
This route heads east from Hawick with a couple of undulating miles as you leave the town. The route then follows the north bank of the River Teviot for some distance before making a steepish but fairly short climb away from the river. Pass Hassendean Bank before a short climb to Denholm and then on to Whitriggs. Beyond this there is a fairly gradual climb before a rapid descent to Kirkton. Return to Hawick climbing up to Kaimend Farm before a steep winding descent. The last leg back to the town is an easy leg of the journey.
