Transcend Festival Information 2019


For the 10th edition of TweedLove Bike Festival – we’ve re-invented it from the ground up.


Innerleithen, Tweed Valley, Scottish Borders  

2019 brings an all new events programme – check out the event pages on this website. 
New venue, new events, new adventures, new enduros, new XC, E-bike events and more.

The aim is simple – we want to create the best bike festival weekend ever experienced in the UK. The Tweed Valley and surrounding area has some of the best MTB trails in the country and is a world class venue for all kinds of bike-riding, so we’re putting on a festival weekend to provide equally stoke-filled times off the bike as well as on it.

What to expect:

  • Mega Bike Demo
  • Bike expo
  • Bike uplifts and shuttles
  • Camping on-site
  • Awesome festival village
  • Transcend Bar and craft beers
  • Street food village
  • DJs & live music
  • ‘Bike-park’ location
  • Access to Innerleithen, Glentress, the Golfie and miles of gravel roads
  • Easy access to some of the country’s best trails
  • Tons of top tracks to ride for non-racers
  • Family events
  • Pumtrack racing
  • Tech support
  • On site parking

The Transcend Festival Plan: Ride fantastic trails with your mates, grab some great grub and beer, check out the bike bling, demo an awesome bike, enjoy top tunes and live music, get stoked to do it again the next day. Repeat.
