Event Overview

O’er the hills and far away

Monday 27 May 2013, 10am Peebles, Kingsmeadows Road car park route approx 50 km

Free Event. Limited places, register in advance. Sign on by 9.30am

It’s only natural to want to explore the Tweed Valley back country, and that’s exactly what this event is all about. The route has been hand-picked with a lot of local knowledge by Ridelines. It’ll take you up some big hills with massive views and to places you almost certainly won’t have been before, with some superb descents guaranteed.

It’s a friendly ride and not overly technical and most reasonably fit riders should manage the challenges, but it is a route that takes you out into remote locations so don’t underestimate the ride.

The route is around 50km and you should allow three–five hours to complete (the super fit will be quicker). It’s free to take part in Natural Tweed, and you’ll be given a printed map and a full route description on the day.

Although there will be support from qualified guides, this is fundamentally a self-guided, self-sufficient day out so you should come prepared. Short-cuts home, where possible, will be marked on the map. Riders must register in advance.

Natural Tweed is sponsored by skills and tuition company RideLines and design/marketing company Hillside Agency.

Please note this ride is self-guided and you’re responsible for looking after yourself. Route may go into high and remote country so carry sufficient clothing and food. Riders are responsible for signing back in when they finish. This event may not be suitable for novice mountain-bikers. Please carry a mobile phone. Over 16s only, unless accompanied and signed on by a responsible adult.
