Where the unique meets the unusual. First England/Scotland cross border sportive with proceeds going to Radio Borders charity Cash for Kids, 4 distances including the first UK junior sportive.

Arguably the Wooler Wheel's most beautiful and challenging ride to date. This time half our lead route, the WW Borderlands 170 (106 miles) will lie in the Scottish Borders. The route will take in a variety of landscapes each with it's own appeal and beauty: the Northumberland sandstone ridges and coast; the sumptuous Tweed Valley as far as St. Boswells; the Scottish and English Cheviots; and the scenic Milfield Plain. Iconic views of the Eildon Hills from Scott's View, Lindisfarne Castle from the coast, the Cheviots from Whitton Edge and many others will take your breath away even more than the steep ascents.

Shorter 100k and 60k versions of the route on the same day.


The 30k junior sportive which takes place on the quiet Northumberland roads, is an ideal ride for those families and children who are perhaps starting out on their cycling adventure, or who have never tried a sportive before.

Unusual in the event venue is a cattle auction mart - complete with bull ring!

Fundraising

All the profits from entry fees will go to support local disadvantaged children, but every penny raised in sponsorship by riders will go to their local Cash for Kids branch, supporting children in their own area. So go on, get sponsored!
