Just paid my first visit to Newcastleton since the introduction of the new trail section from the village. I always enjoyed the trails there but the way they have now restructured them makes them even more enjoyable. The new trail up from the village is fun, a lovely switch-backing bit of singletrack that allows you to gain height in a fairly painless and enjoyable way.
The new section back down to the village is an absolute hoot! Well surfaced, beautifully bermed and just a joy to ride. I enjoyed it so much I finished off the day by doing several laps of this section.
If you haven't tried Newcastleton I highly recommend it. The village has a good bakery and a very nice cafe, the Copshaw.
Trips, adventures, bikes, equipment, etc.
