Bike world’s top guns expected…

To beyond and back.

That’s right- the Tweed Valley’s favourite bike festival is back for 2016- and you’re invited!  Granted it’s only October, but we all need something on the far horizon to pull us through the coming winter months- and a gathering of like-minded riders should do the job nicely.

Flattery will get you, well here

Running from 16-30 May, the 20016 version of 2015’s Best UK Event, Show or Series (according to you all) will open entry for several events on October 13 at 9:00 AM.  On Tuesday morning, the gates open then Skinny Tweed, Love Cross, Family Day, and Natural Tweed will open- and likely fill quickly.  Which to choose?  Here’s a brief rundown:

  • Skinny Tweed: A friendly, welcoming, and more friendly way to discover 75km of Tweedy tarmac.  No girth requirements for either riders or tyres- all are welcome.
  • Love Cross:  Urban cyclocross mayhem!  How could that not be fun?
  • Family Day:  Balance bikes, pedal bikes, wee bikes- for the kids, mind.  And plenty of not racing!
  • Natural Tweed:  No trail centres or flow nonsense here- just a handpicked selection of the region’s finest climbs and descents.  Self-guided and free- just don’t forget to pack extra clothes and sandwiches.
Don't let the puppy fat fool you- these three are gunning for the podium.

For those looking to get rad and/or shred the gnar, stay tuned- entries for the three Tweed Valley Enduros (enduroes?)  will be on sale shortly.
