“Great scenery, fantastic route, friendly atmosphere and so well organised,” 2019 Rider
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.
We are 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 77km of beautiful scenery mainly over quiet back roads, through some stunning Tweed Valley and Scottish Borders scenery. The ride starts and finishes from Event HQ on Tweed Green, Peebles.
