Yep, on the same day as Paris-Roubaix and hot on the heels of the first VCM monument ride of the year, comes the inaugural VCM 'Hell of the Tweed' off road ride.
The parcours will suit CX or MTB's and will take in some of the finest au naturale trails in and around Peebles as well as a jaunt down Gypsy Glen from the rarely used* 'western approach' or more rideable eastern approach (updated!).
Here's a wee taster:
10am meet at my flat, which looks out onto the Kingsmeadows Road carpark in Peebles, for a 1030 ish start. 3-4hrs or so pedal (gentleman's pace), then soup, cakes, coffee after at mine and a dodgy web feed of the final of Paris - Roubaix.
Holla back if this tickles your fancy.
*with good reason - involves 45min hike a bike to get up to ridge..
