|This route starts off on cycle paths and on to nice country roads until heading in to the forest of Ae. Theres a hard long uphill climb on forest road. 12 miles in total on forest road so quite hard work. Down to Moffat is all downhill on tarmac so a great relief after previous section. Nice cafes in Moffat for a well deserved bacon roll :-) then back along main road until turn off for Lochmaben. This road is a lovely country road, no big hills, reasonably flat. Past Lochmaben has one long uphill section but gradual and not too steep. Then its downhill to Dumfries.
Great ride for fitness and views.

|Route from Ae to Beattock is a bit like spaghetti junction with access roads to turbines. Very scenic, whole route is well signposted courtesy of Annandale Cycles. Moffat|
