Starts from 8am, Peebles
Skinny Tweed – Skinny Tweed Provisional Results 2014
A new low cost TweedLove Sportive event for 2014
Organised in conjunction with Peebles Cycling Club
Skinny Tweed has been a popular event for TweedLove for the last four years, but since so many people have asked about including a road bike sportive in the TweedLove programme, the natural thing to do seemed to be to give the Skinny a tweak, up the game and relaunch it for 2014 and Scotland’s year of Homecoming.
So welcome to TweedLove’s very own Sportive ride. You’ll get timing, a numberboard with your name on, free feed station, great organisation and a cracking road route – an entirely new route for 2014 (details here soon). The course will be clearly marked all the way, and you’ll get a route card and marshals in the important places. The course will be around 71km / 45 miles (fine tuning of course under way at present) and will be an enjoyable ride for all levels of road cyclist.
Of course, you’ll also find the same friendly vibe as always with Skinny Tweed. 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 Endura Tour O’ The Borders, it’s a good way to see how the legs are doing.
Either way, Skinny Tweed is about a fine road ride, in good company, with smiles all the way.
