Fat Bikes hit Tweedlove / Glentress & Inner's

Yes it was holiday time again for the bikes. Van packed to the roof off we set to Peebles for four days. Longterm forecast was cloudy, cool & dry. It was cracking weather with sun and plenty heat with no rain at all through all the days of riding. The new cycle track from Peebles to Inners is open and has a link to Glentress so just used that all the time. Saves paying the £3 every time you park up and warms the legs up before you get there. Plenty free carparking at both ends and was very popular with cyclists, walkers & horse riders. The new bridge wasnt fully open but you could still cross it. The tunnel at Peebles end is very dark and the road crossing at Glentress is not the best and you must take extra care as the traffic is very fast. We took part / watched all the Tweedlove Bike Festival Events whilst we were there inc Kids Dirt Crit, Film night, Photo gallery, Short film comp, Dual slalom, Glentress seven, Nat British Downhill Series. What a fantastic Festival and wished we could have seen more. We did Glentress Red, Green, Skills, Blue but ran out of time to do Black & Freeride area. The ride i enjoyed the most is Inner's Red. It was baking hot, clear skies and could see for miles from the top of Minch Moor. Both Fat bikes lapped up the trails with no probs but Glentress is getting very rough in some sections and my wrists were sore at the end of some of the sections. Some photos of the enjoyment below and here is some more
