This 2 part film features the complete Wooler Wheel Borderlands 170 route and riders from the 2015 event filmed LIVE on the 16th May.
Starting on the edge of Wooler the route starts fast and flat before gently undulating to the start of the Lyham Bank climb. A long descent to Belford then running parallel to the coast past Holy Island. Then it heads West through Duddo, Etal and Cornhill. You’re quickly across the Tweed at Coldstream and into Scotland. Through the gently undulating Tweed Valley, then a steep climb to the stunning Scott’s view. Then past the imposing Waterloo monument, into Teviotdale.
Now for some more climbing in the Cheviot Hills, the highest climb of the day is Whitton Edge (301m) Then through Hownam, Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm then back into England. Two good climbs left up Thornington Bank followed shortly by Flodden Edge. Almost there now with another fast descent into Milfield followed by a fast and flat blast along Milfield Plain.
Due to a GPS data problem the total ascent, distance and riding time jump at 155 kms. Corrected figures are total distance 173 kms, total Climb 2300 metres and total riding time approx 270 minutes.
