A week of bike riding and good times on and off the bike in the cycle-friendly Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders from Saturday 11 – Sunday 19 June 2011. Tweedlove is organised by locals and showcases the best on and off road riding in the area. Loads of the events are free. Full details at:

The Tweed Valley is an area with hundreds of miles of the country’s best trails, tracks and roads. So it’s not surprising that in the valley there are a remarkable number of resident bike nuts, of both the mountain and road variety, to whom biking is a big part of life.

It is their enthusiasm, generous support and community spirit that makes TweedLove such a great success.

Entries are open for some events. However, full information and entry details for some events will be announced on Tuesday 19 April. To keep updated with programme information:
