Hi everyone! What a great weekend of weather! Hope everyone got out on their bikes whether it road, mountain bike or anything in between. I was at the Cycle Law Scotland sponsored Tweedlove event Skinny Tweed. A bit different for me as road events are not normally my area, however, as per all Tweedlove events this was another great day.
Photos from the event can be found here.
The sportive was 75km looping from Peebles to Biggar with approximately 630m of climbing. The route used a number of quiet roads past Stobo and Dreva with some challenging climbs and a stop half way to refuel. It was great to see so many people really enjoying their time exploring the Tweed Valley road network.
After spectating at this sportive I also caught the end of Air Maiden, another event happening as part of the Tweedlove Festival. It is great to see the event running again in Scotland. If you are a woman wanting to try out mountain biking event with top coaches then this is the event to try. Hopefully it will return again in the freestyle format in 2017.
