Tweedlove’s Big Heart

by 0

Possibly one of the most beloved riding destinations in the country, the Tweed Valley has a packed year of riding events. We already covered the massive demo fleet they’ll have at the Tweedlove Bike Festival in June, and they recently had a little launch event with Katy Winton and a load of local kids:

See if you can spot Katy in this photo on their Facebook page – she’s cleverly concealed herself among some of the smallest children.

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
