Ride Video – 3 Fun Bike Descents in the Scottish Borders

Ridden on a Nazca Fuego recumbent – super aero and great for descending just a few inches off the ground!

I went out for a ride after a lot of rain so took the Fuego with wider tyres and suspension as the roads were covered in surface water and debris. These were three of the hills I climbed and descended on the route – Witcheyknowe, Paddy Slacks and Windydoors. Witcheyknowe and Paddy Slacks also feature in both the Tour de Lauder and Tour o the Borders sportives.

All 3 are great fun – fairly fast, twisty and narrow roads. During the Tour o the Borders the roads are closed to traffic so you can really let it rip!
