LoveCross Scotland Event
Event website: TweedLove
Summary: As a brand new event in 2015, Love Cross was an immediate big hit! So they’re running it again for 2016 with a few exciting changes. An exhilarating, fun packed, roaring, urban cyclocross inspired event based in the heart of Peebles, Love Cross is a non-stop, action packed, open to all, battle for the podium. Almost as exciting to watch as it is to enter – but only almost!
For 2016, riders can enter solo (£16) or as a pair (£30). Only one rider from each team/pair will be on course at a time. This gives riders a rest while their team mate is out on course. Categories include male solo, female solo, male pair, female pair, and mixed pair. Podiums for each category.
The spectacle begins with a Le Mans style start along the High Street before competitors get on their bike to face the course ahead. A mixture of fast open sprints, tight corners, steps, cobbles, paving, steep climbs obstacles and multiple line choices. And watch out for them pesky kids with their water pistols. It’s a skoosh! Whilst this event means business, and there’s a podium to reach for, it’s really all about the fun. There’s nothing the average rider can’t tackle and getting off and running is all part of the plan! Riders can face the course on any type of bike, each having its own advantages and shortfalls. The short, fast paced action will leave you desperate for more.
If you’re not on track get trackside to cheer the competitors on. Soak up the atmosphere and get shaking those cowbells!
