Tweedlove 2015 - LoveCross

May 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Tweedlove - the cycling festival in the Scottish Borders - started on the 16th May 2015.  

Last night was the 1st running of LoveCross!  This is a kind of 'urban' cyclocross race where the riders start with a Le Mans style foot race to their bikes and then it's a jump over hay bails before mounting their bikes and speeding off up Peebles High Street.  Other obstacles are in the way too.  Include a healthy flight of stairs and pretty soon riders are blowing out their @rse!!  

Anyway, it was all good fun and the weather managed to behave itself.  Rab Wardell was the eventual winner of the final after winning one of the 2 heats.  

A great photographic opportunity too.  The next event I'll be covering is the Peebles Netball Awards so if I remember, I'll post a blog entry about that too.  So, for now, enjoy the slideshow of the pics from LoveCross.
