An excellent road running south from Edinburgh to Carlisle however, I found that after Selkirk, the challenging corners become rarer and the police prescence rises.
Not to worry, because, the A7 is also a very useful link road to other great routes. Clovenfords, Peebles, Coldstream, Moffat have all got good roads around them. And with a little exploring, you can find a perfect afternoons ride. I used to ride these roads very evening in the Summer, and occasionally, they can be almost traffic free.
Some great, well surfaced bends that can be taken confidently with a little practise. Im in Australia now but I miss this road sooo much.
