GALA CYCLING CLUB are inviting Borderers to saddle up for one of the most spectacular cycling events in the region.

Now entering its third year, the Braw Lads Baw Breaker will take place on Sunday and is open to riders of varying ability.

The ride takes in some of the best local scenery and the club is anticipating a record entry.

The event offers 2 distances – 50 miles and 110 miles. Both routes cover some of the most challenging climbs in the Borders and there are four feed stops on the way so riders can recharge their batteries en route.

Starting in Galashiels, the cyclists roll along the quiet back roads to Innerleithen, Heriot, Stow and Langshaw before the two routes split.

More information about the routes and how to enter can be found through Gala CC website

Riders can also sign up on the day, with registration taking place between 7- 8.30am at the Focus Centre, Galashiels.
