A day off today so headed out on the bike for a Cross Border ride crossing in and out of England and Scotland as well as Cumbria and the Scottish Borders, the weather was overcast but dry . Stopped off at Kershope bridge for a sausage butty cooked on the trangia. Covered just over 57 miles and the legs are feeling it since its been a long while since a long ride out. Nearly came a cropper a few times with the clip pedals arrgh….
It wasn’t a fast ride but more of a tour stopping taking photos and vids.

Strava –


  1. Nice steady cycle cam! Good bike as well. I am a fan of panniers rather than stuff on my back. I got a couple of Red ones via Ebay too. Quite heavy themselves but robust as anything. Lidl light cheapies for local shop runs. Good to see the NCN routes and the quaint place signs. Time to hit the islands by CalMac ferries again. Thanks for sharing the run.

  2. Another good video ol smarthaired one . We are lucky to live with all this lovely countryside all round us .

  3. Awesome bike ride mate, you covered some distance there, nice footage too, them cows looked pleased to see you,
    Nice stop off with the trangia, I fixed my bike yesterday so might go for a ride soon, nothing like them distances though haha. Good stuff , all the best πŸ‘

  4. Well.. you went by our work and didn't wave.. then went past our house and didn't wave.. lol.. good route.. ATB.. R&D πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  5. Good run out that marra, nice to see some familiar spota en route. Didnt realise you had did a some off road routes on your strava. Hope the bike wasnt marked when it fell over😨. I tried the same thing with my bike a few month back but the sound quality was dreadfully poor.. I used a kitvision action cam from asda..so crap i took it back πŸ˜‚. Enjoyed the journey along.ATB ,Mark.
