TweedLove organisers have just announced that they have partnered with Adrenalin Uplift to provide transport services up into Glentress and Innerleithen over the TweedLove Festival weekend. The uplift bus stop is part of the expo village, in the town centre of Peebles, and will be open to everyone, though riders demo-ing bikes in the TweedLove Mega Bike Demo will have priority. Enduro racers taking part in the Whyte British Enduro Champs race will be reminded that uplift to Innerleithen is not permitted for practice and no uplift is possible for the race itself. Trail restrictions will be in place in some areas due to the race, but demo tracks will be marked and signposted.
This is great news for brands demo-ing longer travel and DH bike at the event, which has also added Santa Cruz, Stif and Geometron to the impressive list of brands bringing their bikes.
“We’re very excited there’ll be uplift direct from the festival village this year – it means even more shredding all weekend, but also not missing out on the expo, pizza, beer and everything in the festival. It’s going to be just the best bike weekend we’ve ever had,” said Neil Dalgleish from TweedLove.
Uplifts can be booked online at www.adrenalinuplift.co.uk and advance booking prices will be £5 to Glentress and £10 to Innerleithen, or you can get an uplift pass on the day at the festival – first come first served.
To book a bike to demo go to www.tweedlovemegademo.com and choose a brand, bike, and time slot. For just £10 a day you can book up to two bikes in advance, and ‘on-the-day’ slots will also be available for all bikes – but get there early to get the bike of your dreams at the time you want. Brands at this year’s demo include 3T, Bergamont, Bird, Bombtrack, Calibre, Canyon, Cube, DMR, Geometron, Haibike, Hope, Ibis, Intense, Lapierre, Marin, Mondraker, Nukeproof, Orange, Pivot, Santa Cruz, Scott, Sonder, Stif, and Yeti.
