New route for 2018! Cycle Law Scotland Skinny Tweed has been part of the TweedLove Bike Festival since our first events in 2010, and this year it will have a shiny new route for you to enjoy! Always keen to show off why this is the best place in the UK for all sorts of bike-riding, we think you’ll love the new course just as much as the old one. Route details are soon to be revelaed, but the new course will cover a similar distance of approximately 75-80km of beautiful scenery. The route will travel mainly over quiet back roads, through some stunning Tweed Valley and Scottish Borders scenery. The event starts and finishes in the buzzing centre of TweedLove’s event village, with all kinds of bike brands, demo bikes, food stands and much more.
Event is open for anyone 14 years of age or older. Children age 14 or 15 MUST ride with a responsible adult for the duration of the event and have parental consent. Anyone age 16 or older is considered an adult.
