Cathkin Braes - the people's route!

A mini trail centre on the edge of Glasgow.

At only 5.5km long this trail is packed with fun features: 
drops, jumps, rock gardens, berms, a dual slalom section and several kilometers of winding single track. 

Although graded as Red, this course is a great wee introduction to the trail centers that can be found all over Scotland.

Wednesday night is for everyone and we are happy to go at the slowest persons pace...

Kicks off at 8pm.
As usual, no Helmet, no ride.

    Gonna try cycling up from the Gorbals, so hopefully the big hill won't kill me and I don't get too lost. See you there.

      Hi kate! It's harder than spooky wood in terms of being more technical I think...I do need to get up there again, haven't been since feb cause I just wasn't feeling the love for the place!

      Hi Kate,
      If you can ride the red at GT you will be fine on the Cathkin loop. I would say that there are 3 tricky bits to look out for but all can be avoided. The pace on the Wednesday evening is easy going so feel free to come and join in.
