Rockliffe Run

Direction: Out A710, Return Terregles Rd.

Distance: 42 miles.

The coast road is a nice slightly undulating road, pretty smooth and has no tough climbs. Obviously with it being a coastal road expect more wind. Around the Sandyhills area the road narrows quite substantially so be wary here of crazy motorists. Stop off at Rocliffe for a snack and a drink whilst admiring the view. In normal traffic conditions this road in my opinion is pretty hazardous, for this reason I like to head out before 8am when traffic is sparse. Cycle through Dalbeattie, spending 5 minutes on the main road before turning off and heading for the 'Old Military Road' for some proper climbs and descents.

Rating 7/10
