Get on your bike

The Scottish Borders boasts some of the best cycling routes in the UK and at The Tontine Hotel we can offer you the perfect hub from which to venture out and explore these routes. For a gentle afternoon exploring the local area try out the 7.5 mile Cademuir Circuit, the slightly longer 13 miles from Peebles to Traquair House, or head to Manor Valley for a 20 mile ride. Along the way, take a break in the form of a picnic lunch, and give yourself a chance to appreciate the picturesque views that surround you. Or maybe stop off in town for a little shopping and afternoon tea and cake, after all that cycling it's a guiltless indulgence.

If you fancy a route that's a little more challenging try out the Meggett & Talla a 53 mile route with a steep climb up to the Megget Reservoir. We can assure you, the challenge is worthwhile for the view.  Or, for something even tougher, try the BorderLoop, a 250 mile circular journey that passes castles, historic abbeys, and beautiful country houses it's the perfect way to experience Scotland. Feel free to come and have a chat to our team at reception who can help you select the perfect route for you. We also offer; secure bike storage, bike wash facilities, and maintenance rack for bikes so you can rest assured that we have everything you need for the perfect cycling break away.
