On Tuesday 14th of June we have a major new event for a summer evening in Peebles, in the Scottish Borders.

For the first time, a major new road event will be taking place in the town centre: a Belgian-style kermis event with lots of the community involved and pubs and restaurants along the circuit.

The circuit is short and spectacular, with high speeds along the Main Street and sharp descent, and tricky corners with a short uphill to test the lungs each lap.

Many of Scotland’s best riders will be competing, and we’ll see big crowds and a party atmosphere to shout them on too.

 

Peebles Criterium
Graham McGarrity will be one of the stars in Peebles.

The kermis is part of “TweedLove”, a week-long festival of bike-riding and good times in the cycle-friendly Tweed Valley — an area with hundreds of miles of the country’s best trails, tracks and roads.
