It’s one way out of kelso past floors castle on the A6089 That’s the fun road you want. Takes you straight on to the A697 and that takes you back onto the A68 into Edinburgh. If coming from the west side of the country the Moffat road is the one, the A701.
    You boys will know that anyway as your well travelled gentlemen

    That sir......................sounds like our route and many thanks

    Nige,

    I live just off the A68 in Northumberland (near Hexham) and ride up the A68 most Sundays between April and October anyway, so if you are heading up there on the Sunday morning, we can meet up somewhere ?
    Its only about 100 miles for me.

    Looking forward to this already mate !

    The A68 is rated as one of the best biking roads in the UK and it is a great route to the Edinburgh Bypass. They did quite a lot of resurfacing last summer so its now in pretty good shape. I guess joining it from your end means you will do the full length of the A68 upto the bypass !

    Just keep an eye open for Silver/Grey Subaru Impretza's and Scoda Octavia VRS's (current unmarked cars). Also the Dark Blue R1 (unmarked bike)

    Pete

    I was told that by one of your brethren sir ...............so it be fibs then

    Mind we met a very nice man in an unmarked Beemer during the RBLR in 2016 (couldn't see the number for the amount of flashing lights in the back window)


    Thankfully the very impatient man in a Volvo drew the attention away from us
