Organisers expect up to 10,000 cyclists and spectators to attend the event which features’s the UK’s first Enduro World Series race, which sold out within hours.

The popular Glentress 7 on Saturday when teams see how many loops of the forest’s trails they can complete in seven hours is full but there is space on the grass track and cross-park courses for primary school children at Family Day on Sunday afternoon at Hay Lodge Park in Peebles.

New this year are the cyclist-specific pilates classes by Ross Grieve, with the first at Cardrona Village Hall on Monday (May 26).

The popular free ‘Natural Tweed’ 45km off road ride takes place on Monday too.

Tuesday and Wednesday brings Enduro and jumpstart skills sessions in Glentress. On Tuesday there’s also a free mountain bike rideout leaving from Selkirk at 7pm. There is a Kids Bike and Skills Jam in Victoria Park on Wednesday evening and a free easy to moderate ride rideout from Peebles on Wednesday morning.

Next Thursday is film night showing new bike movies and announcing the winners of the TweedLove film competition at Eastgate Theatre, Peebles from 7.30pm.

This is the day too spectators will see the world’s best mountain bikers start to prepare for the Enduro World Series race taking place next weekend.
