Over The Hill Elite Riders
100 Border Settlements
The impossible attempted by the improbable in aid of the essential.
The group who aim to undertake the challenge of passing through over 100 towns, village and hamlets as they cycle 250 miles round the Scottish Borders are a real mix of the good, the bad and the ugly.
With ages ranging from …. an undisclosed number down to 24 and fitness levels ranging from a tortoise to a whippet, the hills and valleys of the Borders will be test for even the backup support driver.
The Lavender Touch reaches out across the Borders and relies on the support of the local community so they can provide vital services. The team have developed a route that crosses much of the region and during the three days they will be on the road, they hope to raise awareness of the charity and much needed funds.
With a tour bus in support, there will be a chance for friends and supporters of the Lavender Touch to visit the bus at various points along the route and cheer on the team as they pass through.
In the lead up to the event which will start on Friday 23 August, there will be regular updates on the website, social media and local media with updates of times and venues where the bus and team will be.
A number of local businesses have already sponsored the team and all support, from businesses to individuals, large or small will be very gratefully received.
You could just donate to us here and now!

( p.s. had trouble with gift aid..maybe just me being daft but there was no address line 1 which seems mandatory 🤔🤔)
Fantastic effort. You could’ve done without the heat wave but am sure your efforts have raised a fantastic amount. Well done all.
Well done - great effort
