Experience: Tweedlove Whyte British Enduro Championships
What can you say about Tweedlove that hasn’t been said before?
Superlatives fall short; for this has to be the outstanding cycling festival in the UK currently running. It’s inclusive – yet draws riders of exclusive standards; It’s fun, light hearted yet slick and well presented; and it’s transformational – what its done for cycling in the Peebles area is enormous.
There are so many events happening – the G7, The Gritduro, Skinny Tweed – the list goes on, but our focus is on the Whyte British Enduro Champs.
This was a big one on the Enduro calendar and it showed in the entries – Katy Winton, Lewis Buchanan, Ruaridh Cunnigham, Joe Barnes , Bex Baraona and Mark Scott in attendance, there was some serious fire power on show between the Sitka of the famous Tweed Valley descents.
Classic terrain was order of the day – names like Waterworld, 39 steps and Repeat Offender caused excitement in those with the skills and trepidation for those more used to trail centre than natural.
Ian Linton, one of the Valley’s most famous son’s takes over from here with some classic bangers….
The Descent-World team know how to enjoy an Enduro! Well worth a watch.
