Tour O The Borders is back for 2025!

After a year off, Tour O The Borders will be back on Sunday 7 September 2025 to ride the fantastic 2023 routes again. The long course will take in the Devil’s Beeftub, Moffat Dale, Grey Mare’s Tail and some of the best road cycling in the south of Scotland, all on closed roads. The 88km Challenge route will still feature the classic Talla climb and Megget road as the centrepiece.

With mile after mile of spectacular scenery, on some of the best road cycling terrain in Scotland, it’s a genuinely wonderful day out on the bike!

Choose between:

  • The Full Route - 120km
  • The Challenge Route - 88km 

You can change route from full to challenge, and vice versa, at any point before the event - and you can actually change whilst on course. We will provide more information about this in due course. Please read more about the choice of routes at 

Our aim is to provide the best value-for-money closed road sportive in the country, and it’s 100% organised by local riders.

So, what do you get for your money?

  • A fantastic closed road ride including some of the UK’s best cycling country and awesome scenery**
  • Great feed stations on the route with a variety of locally-made treats, including cakes and the world famous macaroni pies from Forsyths of Peebles
  • The best electronic chip timing system, rider times texted to you soon after finish
  • Official souvenir medal for all finishers
  • Buzzing event village 
  • Mechanical support before and during the event  
  • Comprehensive first aid and safety provision around the course
  • Water and toilet stops where you’ll most likely need them (we’re riders too!)
  • A sweeper vehicle and tech/service support on course

**As organisers and riders we understand and respect the inconvenience that closed road cycling events can bring, so we really appreciate the patience of local communities. We’re currently working with local authorities, the affected communities around the course and traffic management professionals on the closed road arrangements.

As a result we’re proposing a neutralised section in Moffat town centre, the potential for agricultural and local service vehicles to operate around the Megget and Talla route (short course only), and traffic management measures on a final section of the route east of Peebles.

Adaptive riders

Any and all accessible bikes are welcome at this event, whether you’re assisted (legally!) by motor, by manual hand power or otherwise.  If you have any questions, please email We aim to accommodate any additional requirements where possible.


We will be in touch with details of Tour O The Borders camping next year.
