TWEEDLOVE has wheeled out a new two-day mountain bike adventure aimed at racers on a electric bikes.

It comes hot in the tyre tracks of the UCI Cycling World Championships, centred on an event village at Traquair House, on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday August 19-20.

Racers will take on a two loop specifically designed for electric bikes (eMTBs) and riders aged from 14 upwards are invited to register.

A TweedLove spokesperson said: “TweedLove’s Electric Weekend 2023 supported by Bosch eBike Systems has set its sights on becoming the UK’s best multi-day eMTB riding experience, combining a unique course designed specifically for eMTB racers with a festival event village.

“The course will be marked on a digital map leading eMTB racers around the best of the Tweed Valley’s trails, featuring a different route for each of the two race days.

“Departing from Innerleithen and taking in the incredible descents the area is famed for, the race steers clear of the no-foot or uphill stages typical of the Bosch eMTB Challenge to deliver the flow and sense of adventure more akin to enduro racing. Formulated as a test of riding skill and smart battery management, the course is designed to be completed using one battery each day.

“There is an alternative race category available for those who want to use an extra battery.

“Both race days include on-course lunch, electronic timing and instant results, alongside physical and digital course markers, plus support from medics, marshals, and Bosch’s technical support team.”

The event village, at Traquair House, is the hub of the race weekend. It will also be home to Bosch eBike Systems’ technical support team, battery charging facilities, food, bar, and entertainment. Camping is also available and race participants, alongside their families and friends, are free to explore the grounds and maze all weekend.
