RR Urban Double Sprint @ Tweedbank & Melrose
Feb 25 @ 11:00 am – 11:00 am

Tweedbank and Melrose:

An exciting new format for RR – two urban sprints in one day, combined time for the two events will determine the winners. Full range of courses including juniors. Ample car parking or why not take the train on the scenic journey from Edinburgh to Tweedbank Station from where it’s a short walk to the Arena. Both events are within walking distance of the Arena.

Tweedbank has a good mixture of “new town” streets and alleyways with light traffic. Melrose is a more traditional small town, all centred round The Greenyards, home of the Melrose 7’s rugby tournament every April  (for rugby fans, the event is the day after the Calcutta Cup match at Murray field so you could make a weekend of it). Magnificent views of the surrounding area from the Eildon Hills. Plenty of cafes nearby as well as Abbotsford House, home of Sir Walter Scott.

Maps: Tweedbank was used for our 2013 SOUL and has an updated map: Routegadget  HERE Melrose has been mapped more recently and only used for a couple of small club events, so not on Routegadget.
