Annual Sportive on the 25th of August

PCC are holding our annual Sportive on the 25th of August 2024.

This has always been well supported by club members, so please save the date!

The 2024 event comes with a bit of a name change – Tweed Valley Sportive (previously Tour of Tweeddale) and will use the same 2 routes as last year.

If you are available to help on the day or if you want to join our organising team, please email me – cgulvik@hotmail.co.uk.

Entries will be opening soon.
