About Ridelines MTB

Provider Avatar

Ridelines are a mountain bike tuition company based in the Tweed Valley, Scotland. Started by Andy Weir started in 2011 with the goal of bringing his passion for mountain biking to people who lacked the confidence or ability to take their riding forward. It was simply a dream of his to take the sport he enjoyed and make a living from it. Something we can all relate to? Seven years later Ridelines has moved on to be one of the most respected businesses in this sector.

We are based in Innerleithen, the spiritual home of Scottish MTB and Since our beginnings, we have been inseparable from the Tweed Valley MTB scene. At one time or another, we have contributed and donated time to almost all of the local cycling clubs and organisations from the early days of the Bike Patrol, right up the present day with groups like Tweed Valley Riders, Tweedlove and DMBinS.
