Stranraer to Eyemouth coast-to-coast cycle route revealed ahead of World Cycling Championships

The route for the UK’s newest coast-to-coast cycle challenge has been revealed.

The 250-mile Kirkpatrick C2C will take riders across the South of Scotland from Stranraer to Eyemouth when it is officially launched in the summer.

The route is named after Kirkpatrick Macmillan, the 19th century Dumfriesshire blacksmith who invented the first pedal-driven velocipede.

Initial projections suggest the route could attract up to 175,000 new visitors to the region, with a direct spend of £13.7 million per year.
