Location: Tweed Valley
Welcome to Gritopia TweedLove's grit, gravel (or whatever you want to call it) adventure.
Gritopia will take you on a journey to many new places in the Tweed Valley hinterland, leaving the traffic far behind and often far below you. Expect mile after mile of empty grit and gravel with a few stretches of quiet tarmac linking it all up.
There will be two course lengths;
The Long One | approx. 75km
The Short(er) One | approx. 45km
All you need to do is pick one of them… you can do this nearer the time – no need to decided just yet.
Any suitable bike will do. A dedicated gravel bike is perfect but a mountain bike will be fine too. Oh, and brand new for 2020 – eBikes are welcome! As part of Electric TweedLove ePowered by Bosch TweedLove are delighted to introduce eBikes into the Gritopia mix for 2020. They do however recommend leaving the road bikes at home, they’ll be a tad uncomfortable and the gearing might by unhelpful in places.
