Tour of Tweeddale - Sunday 27th August 2023
Welcome Back to Tour of Tweeddale 2023.
As with previous years we are offering 2 great routes, The Classic and the infamous Double Talla.
The Classic : This 50 miler remains a popular choice for many. Takes in the challenging Talla climb, amazing countryside, and a couple of good foodstops at Tweedsmuir and Cappercleuch by St Mary's Loch.
Double Talla : A challenging 93 miles. Out from Peebles over Talla, down past the Grey Mares' Tail to Moffat, over the Devil's Beeftub and repeat the Talla climb for a second time to the feedstop at Cappercleuch by St Mary's Loch. Refuelled you will return to Peebles via the Paddy Slacks climb.
