Tesco Bank Tour O The Borders

A classic Scottish Closed Road Sportive in the beautiful Scottish Borders – Two routes – 88km Challenge route or 120km full route

Now in its sixth year, the Tesco Bank Tour O The Borders features some of the best and most beautiful road riding in the country. Passing lochs, castles and ancient houses, it rolls through beautiful valleys and hits some iconic climbs which has established it as one of the best sportives in the UK.

This what Cycling Active had to say about the event in 2016

For 2017, we’ll be offering both long (120km) and short (88km) routes again. The shorter version of the route has a bit less climbing but still features the fantastic scenery and many of the route highlights.

AdTech Ad

With mile after mile of spectacular scenery, some of the best road cycling terrain in Scotland, and the inclusion of the famous Talla Wall climb, our route is truly a classic. It’s a fantastic day out on the bike!

Course Info

Starting in the Borders town of Peebles, the ‘Touro’ route will travel mainly over quiet back roads, and climb several stiff hills along the way. Challenging but rewarding, the routes (short and long) will feature some amazing natural scenery – what better way to take your mind off your efforts than by enjoying this beautiful part of Scotland!

We’re confident this is the best value-for-money closed road sportive in the country, and it’s 100% organised by local riders.

So what do you get for your money?

– A fantastic closed road ride including some of the UK’s best cycling country and awesome scenery

AdTech Ad

– Great feed stations on the route with a variety of locally-made treats, including some fantastic cake and Forsyth’s famous macaroni pies

– The best electronic chip timing system, results texted to you soon after finish

– Official souvenir for all finishers

 Mechanical support before and during the event provided by Shimano

– Comprehensive first aid and safety provision around the course

– Water and toilet stops where you’ll most likely need them (we’re riders too!)

– A sweeper vehicle and tech/service support will be on course

Hub Club Ride

If the Meander announcement wasn’t enough excitement for you then we also have our monthly Hub Club rides kicking off again this Sunday! Our Hub Club rides are training rides designed to help you prepare for Pedal for Scotland (Official) on Sunday 10th September.

We start at 7 miles this Sunday and then every month we add another 7 miles (and probably a few hills) so that come September the 50 mile ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh will be a complete doddle!

March 5th – 7 miles
April 2nd – 14 miles
May 7th – 21 miles
