Covid-19 put a spoke in the wheels of the cycle challenge held annually in aid of Borders rugby legend Doddie Weir’s motor neurone disease research charity last year, but it was back this summer, offering routes from Melrose of 22, 60 or 93 miles.

The standard 60-mile route took riders via Earlston, Kelso, Jedburgh and Hawick back to Melrose Rugby Club.

The longer version branched off at Kelso on a 33-mile loop via Coldstream.

The shorter version follows the same route via Earlston to Smailholm then headed back to its starting point.
