Need to get people confirmed so we can sort out suitable accomodation. Thurs to Monday again.


AM travel leave Gloucester say 7-8ish as aim to get to the trail centre for 1ish so we can do a quick ride PM.  In terms of traveling best bet is to buddy up and talk amongst yourselves about car sharing.  If you fancy a spot of late brekkie, Tebay services is great just north of Kendal http://www.tebayservices.com/.  They are the same people as the new Gloucester services BTW.

PM ride Kirroughtree and meet from say 1pm onwards and people can take their pick on the trails but TBH the red is fine for all. http://7stanesmountainbiking.com/Kirroughtree .
Accommodation – Gorsebank Bothy, one night


This will be a good days riding so make sure you are well feed and watered.

AM ride Dalbeattie and people can take their pick – absolutely awesome trails!!!  http://7stanesmountainbiking.com/Dalbettie .

PM ride AE and everyone to ride the red http://7stanesmountainbiking.com/Ae/Ae-Line-Trail as its TBH not too bad just different paces required  They have a café so we can get a spot of food afterwards and the quicker rides can have a play on the drops at the end of the trail as well.

Accommodation – Kalzie Bunkhouse


A great red Trail, an uplift is now available to all the Downhill runs at Innerleithin, all graded as extreme, book your own uplift if you want to do these, or you can ride up!


ALL DAY Glentress, can’t express how good it is. http://7stanesmountainbiking.com/Glentress—Innerleithen

Again this will be a good days riding so make sure you are well feed and watered.

Accommodation – Kalzie Bunkhouse, local so you can ride there and back


AM a quick drive to Newcastleton or Mabie
