The ‘inclusivity’ of the festival has to be one of its greatest attributes with events for even the youngest of our CB3 affiliates – our sons and daughters rode in the Family ride around the closed streets of Peebles before spraying the Pros with water pistols during the debut Love Cross event, a full day of racing for children from 4 to 14 in the Mini and Mega mash-ups of the Family day and even third place in the Film competition for ‘The Youth of Today’!
Paul stepped up again this year to compete in the third round of the Enduro World Series hosted by Tweedlove for a second year, which saw the world’s best mountain bikers competing across two days on tracks scattered across the hills surrounding Peebles and Innerleithen.
What a privilege to ride on the same local trails as these internationally renowned men and women.
Even with this stiff competition Paul took eighth place in his category and the legs are recovering nicely! In between volunteering, marshalling and CAD-ing up the Enduro Expo village for Tweedlove HQ, Dee took part in her first ever bike event. Despite being relatively new to MTB, she rode the Glentress 7 with 2 pals and narrowly missed a podium spot!
We consider ourselves inordinately lucky to have such a dynamic event right here on our doorstep and for it to be so incredibly easy to be involved. Counting down the days until Tweedlove 2016!
