Another beautiful morning greeted us when we left the Wheatsheaf this morning. The wind had dropped and although it was cold we could see that the sun was going to be with us for a good part of the day.
Heading first along the Tyne valley and then up into the North Tyne toward Bellingham was a great way to start our journey today. The picturesque rolling fields and hedgerows of Northumberland were amazing to be riding through with hundreds of newly born lambs and a myriad of bird life.
We met Gav, our biking friend, for a spell up until Kielder village where we bid him farewell as we pushed on for the border.
It was a great feeling crossing into Scotland and we spent the rest of the afternoon reflecting on our journey so far.
With the final long downhill into Hawick complete, we were welcomed into the B and B with a cuppa and a biscuit.
