Tour of Tweeddale Cycle Sportive
26 Aug 18
Tour of Tweeddale - Sunday 26th August.
Last year's routes were so popular that we've decided to change the long one only.
No change to the ToT Classique (T1). This 50 miler remains a popular choice for many. Takes in the challenging Talla climb (T1, only once ;-)), amazing countryside, and a couple of good foodstops at Tweedsmuir and the Gordon Arms in Yarrow.
The ToT T2 is new this year. So named because you have the dubious pleasure of climbing Talla twice! An in between you have the scenic descent to St. Mary's Loch, on to Moffat, and then a climb up the Devil's Beef Tub. Again, no stinting on sustenance with feed stations at Tweedsmuir and the Gordon Arms.
Online entries close Friday 24th August. No entries on the day.
Entry cost is £20 (includes online admin charge). Under 18 cost £10. No riders under 16 (on the day of the event).
Registration will be at Station Road Car Park, Edinburgh Road, Peebles, which is adjacent to the start. (see map)
Registration opens at 7.30am, and closes at 8.45am. The last departure for the ToT T2 will be at 8.30am, and for the T1, by 9am.
Finish will be on Tweed Green, Peebles (next to the swimming pool). This will be signposted and marshalled.
Rider times will be provided, but are dependant on you stopping at well signposted checkpoints (and the finish!).
Snacks and drinks will be available at intervals on the course, including hot soup at the Gordon Arms.
A "broom wagon" will sweep the course after the last rider.
