First riders out from 9am
Cycle Law Scotland Skinny Tweed is all about a great road ride, in good company, with smiles all the way. If you’ve never done a Sportive before, this is the perfect opportunity to have a go, in a relaxed atmosphere. If you’re training for a bigger event such as the Tour O The Borders closed road sportive, it’s a good way to see how the legs are doing.
Cycle Law Scotland Skinny Tweed has been part of the TweedLove Programme since our first events in 2010. 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 course as it follows a route 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.
