Cathkin Braes XC

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.

    Sorry guys, I'm not going to be able to make it. Just back from A&E after breaking the top off my finger & a whole chunk of skin whilst trying to realign my front brake disc calliper, don't ask. Had to have my finger nail removed plus 2 stiches, hmm nice. Hope to see you in a few weeks time. Cheers

    Hi All
    With the nights closing in please be on time tomorrow night. If we leave at 8pm sharp we should be good for 1.5 or 2 laps.

    If you have lights and fancy an extra lap in the dark then count me in.

      if you’re not familiar with the trail watch out for the bit by the wind turbine and the 2nd steep bit after the big climb [the bit with the view over the city] enjoy
