Things to do.

Several cycle routes lie close by, including:


The 7Stanes Mountain Bike Trails

The 7stanes are seven mountain biking centres spanning the south of Scotland, from the heart of the Scottish Borders to Dumfries and Galloway. At each of the 7stanes locations, you'll find a stone sculpture reflecting a local myth or legend. Moat Vale provides a (not quite) central location for the routes. The stanes are found out on the trails in the forests, in prominent locations near cycling and walking paths. They’re accessible on foot or by horse as well as by bike, and range in size from one to three metres high and from two to six tons in weight.


The Border Stane, Newcastleton

This stane is stands right on the border between Scotland and England. The hole in the middle allows people stand on either side of the border and shake hands through the stane:  http://www.7stanesmountainbiking.com/

The Border Reivers Cycle Route


They were notorious murderers, thieves and ne’er-do-wells who plundered the lawless border lands of England and Scotland with impunity for than 300 years. For them life was hard, violent, and usually short- ended by the cold steel of a sword, or more commonly by a hangman’s noose. They were the Border Reivers.


Now, four centuries after they roamed the land, the bloody legend of the Reivers lives on. The Border Reivers Cycle Trail takes you into the heart of their stronghold. Aimed at cyclists, walkers and horse riders, with routes to suit all the family the Trail covers over 100 miles of spectacular and unspoilt countryside. http://reivers-route.co.uk/the-route/


Lands  End to John o Groats (LEJoG)


We always have a few LEJoGgers in every year, some on their own , some as part of larger parties and full support crew. LE JoGgers are always  welcome and always have a tale or two to tell on their way past Carlisle and Gretna Green.   The question is ..... Why :) !!!!


National Cycle Network - Route 7


This long distance route takes you from Sunderland to Inverness via Longtown. See sustrans link http://www.sustrans.org.uk/route-7 for a route map and additional info. Cyclists are always welcome to take a well earned break at Moat Vale .


Eden Valley Circular Cycle Route

Spur 1 of the Eden Valley Circular Cycle Route from Carlisle to Brampton is an ideal way to experience much of The Debatable Lands. The majority of the route is on small, quiet roads that see little more than local traffic and provide spectacular views of the beautiful countryside.



Kielder Forest Mountain Biking


Kielder is now an international destination for mountain bikers. The Deadwater Trail offers an exiting  range of challenges fro 2km to 15km long.
