Fuelled by Accelerade. Join us in the stunning Scottish Borders and Cumbrian and Northumberland landscape for this early season cycling weekend. The village of Newcastleton is nestled in the land of Reivers and Romans and the routes on offer provide the perfect opportunity to explore this wild, often overlooked, area of mainland Britain.

Enjoy the quiet twisting lanes, open Roman roads, challenging climbs and seemingly never-ending descents while taking in the magnificent scenery of Eskdalemuir and Kielder Reservoir with maybe the odd glimpse of Hadrian's Wall - few sportives can boast such a varied and interesting journey through two millenia of Britain's chequered history.

The weekend will feature two routes heading south into England on Saturday and two heading north through Scotland on Sunday using the established Southern Borders Loop cycling routes - using much of the route used by the first stage of the Tour of Britain in 2013, including Lime Kiln Edge - so riders can choose to do as little as 45 miles or up to 160 miles in a weekend!
Entry costs just £17 for one day or £30 to take part on both days until January 2014 (price increase in 2014, see website for details) with all the usual services and support on offer.

The Newcastleton Cross-Border Classic Sportives presented in association with nutrition brand Accelerade and Visit Newcastleton.
