The number of cycling events held in the Scottish Borders is expected to reach a record high in 2013, according to a local authority.

The region hosted a stage of the Tour of Britain for the third time in 2012, while in coming months there will be the Newcastleton Cycling Festival (April 5th to 7th), Borders Ciclista (May 11th to 12th) and the Tweedlove Cycling Festival (May 25th to June 2nd). The Tour o’ the Borders will also make a return to the Borders sportives calendar on April 14th.

“There is a busy and varied cycling events programme set to get underway in the Scottish Borders from the spring," said Neen Kelly, recreational cycling officer for the Scottish Borders. "Local cycling groups have been making a brilliant effort to put on events that demonstrate what this area can offer and this year’s programme is shaping up to be the best ever.”

According to the region's spokespeople, increasing numbers of catalogued cycling routes throughout the Borders region is also playing a role in bringing more cyclists to the area.

Neen Kelly continued: ”We unveiled yet more new routes at the end of 2012 including the BorderLoop4, a set of brilliant circulars that enable the epic 250 mile BorderLoop to be tackled in more manageable chunks. Our hope is that the fantastic variety of routes now available to cyclists combined with both competitive and social cycling events will put the Borders at the top of road cyclists’ favourite destinations this year.”
