A great 50 miler which was probably the longest my wife has managed since we go the tandem a couple of years ago. A lovely ride. Particularly nice bits were the descent into Town Yetholm, where we got tea and cake at the village shop, and the run along the valley from thereon. All in all a great week's riding and the area is well suited to the tandem as the hills tended to be long and steady rather than short and steep (or long and steep!) and we hardly met any traffic apart from on the short stretch of the A697 between Wooler and Akeld. Thank you to all who encouraged us to come here.

A tandem - was it you mending a puuncture outside a pub in Coldstream may be wed ?

Not us. We were outside the pub in Coldstream on Monday enjoying a nice lunch at half price! Was it a blue Orbit, is so it was a couple from Leeds we bumped into a couple of times.
