Bikesafe assessment route

I did an assessed ride with Lothian and Borders police last Sunday under their part in the national Bikesafe scheme. Here is the route that the ride took:

  1. Started at Peebles Police Station (shared with the Court Buildings) in Rosetta Road, Peebles.
  2. Turned left out of the Police Station onto Rosetta Road.
  3. Followed road to the left (March Street) at no entry signs for the one way street (Young Street).
  4. Followed March Street past Somerfield, to Junction with Edinburgh Road (A703) and turned right.
  5. Followed Edinburgh Road to roundabout at Somerfield Petrol Station, and turned right into Eastgate.
  6. Follow straight on to High Street.
  7. Follow High Street to roundabout, turning right into Old Town (A72).
  8. Follow Old Town on to Neidpath Road (A72) (watch for sharp left hander).
  9. Follow A72 to sign for Stobo Castle, turning left over bridge onto B712.
  10. Follow B712 past Stobo, through Bellspool, through Drumelzier (note sharp right hander).
  11. Follow right onto A701, parking up in layby on right in Broughton for a chat.
  12. Back out on to A701, through villages to Romannobridge.
  13. Turn right on to B7059.
  14. Follow and turn left on to A72.
  15. Back on A72 into Peebles, turn left into Young Street and return to police station.

And then wonder where the other three bikes got to 😉
