One of the UK's best-loved cycling weekenders is back, as TweedLove Bike Festival returns in September 2021.

And, "after a wee break for a hideous pandemic", this year's TweedLove promises to be the best yet, with support from new headline sponsors Chain Reaction Cycles.

The family-friendly mountain bike festival will feature a full programme of rides and events, including a Family Ride supported by Frog Bikes on Friday 17 September, and an "intro level" enduro, RideLines Enjoyro, on Saturday 18 September.

Entry to the event village is free, and the festival wil host what organisers say is the UK's biggest bike demo, featuring top brands available to test on the tracks, trails and roads of the Tweed Valley.

TweedLove Bike Festival returns this September - with road and gravel rides set for June.

Online retailers CRC have signed up as partners not only for the festival weekend, but also for TweedLove's road sportive and gravel adventure events which will take place in June.

That includes Chain Reaction Cycles Gritopia, a "grit, gravel and (mostly) off-road adventure" set for Saturday 12 June, and the Cycle Law Scotland Skinny Tweed road sportive on Sunday 13 June.

"It's fantastic for TweedLove to have the opportunity to work with such a respected organisation, and Chain Reaction's support is going to make what's already known as one of the best bike weekends in the UK even better," say the event organisers.

"We missed our big tenth birthday party last year but the positivity around this year and moving away from Covid could more than make up for it."

Grant Norris of Chain Reaction Cycles said: "It's a fantastic opportunity for us to partner with TweedLove this year, which is set to be a superb celebration of cycling.

"There's so much to get involved with throughout the weekend in such an incredible setting and Chain Reaction Cycles are excited to be there and revel in the joy that two wheels bring!"
