The project is expected to deliver new economic, environmental and community benefits and will be ready in time for Scotland to host the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships this summer.
The route is being taken forward with a Team South approach through the South of Scotland Cycling Partnership which includes South of Scotland Enterprise, Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders councils, South of Scotland Destination Alliance, VisitScotland and Sustrans Scotland.
SSE are looking for community representatives, cycling clubs and businesses along the cycle route to find out how this new opportunity could benefit business and community.
