On the first weekend of June Tweed Green played host to the Tweedlove Mountain Biking Expo. Over 400 riders and people from all over the world descended on Peebles for two days of demonstrations, music, food and fun. The following weekend the Tweed Ride saw families from far and wide cycle from Tweed Green to Traquair House where they were met with music from Zoe Bestel, The beard of Zu and Jellyman's Daughter. Peebles Creative Place 2014 provided the music and we were there to soak up the atmosphere and share some information about Peebles Creative Place 2014 while recording peoples Tweedlove experiences.
Here are some of the responses we got:
Neil Dalgleish, Tweedlove Festival Director: "Its one of the biggest Mountain Bike events held in Britain...its great to see people from around the world coming to Peebles. Its great that Creative Place can help bring other cultural aspects to the programme."
Katy Winton, World Enduro Series Competitor and Peebles Local: "Its great to compete in and around my home town and see so many people turn out on Tweed Green. The music is great and I'm looking forward to relaxing by the stage for the rest of the day."
