TweedLove festival and demo – uplift now available all weekend!

by 0

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.

Shut up legs, you’re getting a rest!

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.

Which brands would you like to try?

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.

Lots of fun to be had!

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.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Festival schedule – there’s plenty to see and do!

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
