Tour of Tweeddale Cycle Sportive
27 Aug 17
Tour of Tweeddale - Sunday 27th August.
Last year's routes were so popular that we've left them the same:
The ToT Classique (or "wee wan"). 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 the Gordon Arms in Yarrow.
The ToT Super Grande (or "the big wan"). Very popular last year, and a big challenge (well, it is a hilly 100 miler). Takes in a number of great climbs in Yarrow and Ettrick and also the Beef Tub climb on the way home from Moffat. Eyefuls of scenery, and good food at the 3 feedstations.
Online entries close Friday 25th 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 100 miler will be at 8.30am, and for the Classique, by 9am.
Finish will be at Station Road Car Park, Edinburgh Road, Peebles (same location as start). 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.
