Now in it's fourth year one of the highest rated sportives over the last three by cyclosport reviewers, the Braw Lads Baw' Breaker returns. Once again allowing the option of two dchallenging courses with distances of: 50 mile and 111 mile.

Starting in the Scottish Borders town of Galashiels the route rolls along the quiet back roads to Innerleithen, Heriot, and Stow. From Stow you encounter the famous hill climb used for the club's Time Trial and 2012 Scottish National Hill Climb Championship.It's relatively short but do not under estimate it! From the top you continue to Langshaw. Here the two routes split. The short route heads home via Ellwyn Glen, Bottle Bridge and back to Galashiels. The long route goes over the climb at Mosshouses heading for Earlston and adding an extra climb through Redpath before heading for the stunning vantage point of Scotts View. Please slow down to take pleasure in the view of the Eildon Hills as you will get closer to them later in the day. Enjoy the descent through Dryburgh and head for St Boswells and Maxton.The route now winds itself past Nisbet heading for Morebattle and Hownam. From here you have some significant climbs over to Jedburgh and Lanton. Finally the route heads home via Denholm, Lilliesleaf, Midlem, the Eildon Hills and Melrose
