Meet Up and Ride 2018

Join us for a ride! We’re heading for some favourite trails and everyone’s welcome.

The TweedLove social meet ups are FREE and there’s no need to pre-book – just turn up, meet up and head out on the trails.

Friendly, fun and informal MTB and gravel local rides, these rides kind of say what TweedLove is all about – getting out and riding some trails in good company.

These are informal bike rides, and not officially guide-supported. Treat it like a normal bike ride where you’re responsible for yourself and your bike – just meeting up with some new riding pals. You and your bike take part at your own risk. Anyone under 16 must be with a responsible adult.

Routes vary according to weather and who turns up and usually last a couple of hours or so. All ride-outs are mixed groups except where noted.

NEW FOR 2018: Curious about gravel and adventure riding? Join us for a “gravel ride taster” – find out what it’s all about!
