The inaugural year of the Braw Lads Baw' Breaker allows the option of two distances: 50 mile and 109 mile.

Starting in the Scottish Borders town of Galashiels the route rolls along the quiet back roads to: Innerleithen, Heriot, and Stow. From Stow you encounter the famous hill climb used for the clubs Time Trial. It's relatively short but do not under estimate it! From the top you continue to Langshaw, Gattonside Leaderfoot and climb to the stunning vantage point of Scotts View. Please slow down to take pleasure in the view of the Eildon Hills as you will get closer to them later in the day. Enjoy the descent through Dryburgh and head for St Boswells and Maxton.

The route now winds itself past Nisbet heading for Morebattle and Hownam. From here you have some significant climbs over to Jedburgh and Lanton. Finally the route heads home via Denholm, Lilliesleaf, Midlem, the Eildon Hills and Melrose.

The short route heads back to the finish before going through Gattonside.
