If you’re volunteering outside, marshalling or course marking for example, you’ll need lots of warm clothes and everything you need to be comfortable, dry and warm for a whole day outside.

What TweedLove means for the valley
TweedLove is now one of the most important events of the year for the Scottish Borders. In 2016, the economic benefit for the area was over £870,000, making it one of the most successful tourism drivers in the region.
What we do has also helped to maintain the Tweed Valley’s reputation as an amazing place to visit for mountain biking. Our events have led to many new trails being built and maintained, a good relationship between the Forestry Commission and the community, some fantastic international media coverage and the best tourism/event-based social media stats in the region.
The stats show how well we’ve done, but also that maybe some of the big organisations need to do better!
Anyway, the bottom line is, TweedLove makes a BIG difference to this place now, and a lot of that is down to your support.
