The startline is in Musselburgh, right outside Edinburgh, and we follow the south cost of the Firth of Forth towards east. From North Berwick we proceed towards Tantallon Castle, whose silhouette appears in the skyline, while on the left the view is dominated by the Bass rock. From here we move to Dunbar, and after 50km practically flat, the climbs start. Here for a few km some clouds cover the un causing a dark images for a while. After 90km more across a wild landscape, the route ends in Gifford. The last descend offers a panoramic view of the Firth of Forth from south.
