The Scottish Borders plays host to some top class mountain bike racing as the British MTB Marathon Championships comes to Selkirk on 2nd May 2015. Coupled with non-competitive ‘sportive’ rides of varying distances, there’s something for everyone; families, novices, intermediates, enthusiasts and racing snakes alike.
All the courses are mainly ‘real’ mountain biking with a fantastic mix of the very best Scottish riding - natural and hand-made singletrack, twin-track forest roads and ancient drove roads. Riders can expect lung and thigh busting climbs that are rewarded with epic grin-inducing descents.
It’s all wrapped into a weekend long celebration of all things cycling, including a free-of-charge and open to all Bike Festival in the town’s High Street – come and have a go at Roller Racing, the Pump Track, MTB Obstacles, or watch the Bike Stunt Shows and Cycling films.
