New route map added October 18, 2012

We’ve just put up this year’s Natural Tweed route map, so you can download the map and description for an ‘out-there’ XC experience. It’s a great route, and feels quite remote at times, well worth investigating.


The Magnificent Seven rides again September 10, 2012

Right, time for thinking up witty team names and a devising a gruelling/lacklustre (delete as appropriate) training regime. The Glentress Seven 2013 opens for entries on Wednesday 12.12.12 at, er, 12 noon. Whether you’re a cross country uberlord or a weekend trail lover, Scotland’s loveliest seven hour trailfest will show you a good time you and your legs won’t forget all year. Race as hard or easy as you like on your own or with pals, it’s just a great day out on the bike, using some of the finest trails in Glentress – including some opened specially for this event. Nice climbs, sweet descents and a good laugh in the village.

We might be up to our top tubes in post-festival admin, beer and old course tape, but we’re pleased to announce next year’s TweedLove festival dates. Next year’s cycling clanjamfrie will rip it up over nine days, from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June. Loads of bike riding and good times to look forward to in lucky ’13. Hope we see you then!

After much argument over saturation, depth of field, composition and who drank the most beers, the judges finally switched off the monitor and agreed the winners. Well done to you guys…

Meet the (Tweed)Love Machine June 19, 2012

We had this daft idea to see if someone could ride (almost) all the events during TweedLove 2012. After much organisational hoo-ha, Jake Hood agreed to take the challenge.
