The re-return to Gatehouse of Fleet

Mabie / Dalbeattie / Kirroughtree

Will see if there is a demand for this as there is a weekender a few weeks before. A weekender to take in the excellent Dumfries Stanes. We will be riding the red routes and probably the black at Kirroughtree for those with the energy. We will be staying at the Scout Hall in Gatehouse of Fleet which has a kitchen and showers/toilet, camping on the hall floor so sleeping mats/airbeds and sleeping bags required. It is a nice quiet village with a few pubs for food and refreshments! Cost is £6.50pppn

Make sure your bike is in good working order and bring suitable spares and tools. No helmet no ride. Earplugs recommended!

Full trail descriptions can be found here  http://www.7stanesmountainbiking.com/Home

Suggested itinerary:

Friday - Mabie (optional for those that can get off work)

Saturday - Kirroughtree 11:00 am (about 30 min drive)

Sunday - Dalbeattie 10.30am (about 30 min drive)

    Kev - took my bike to Willie Bain's this morning to get it fixed after Arrochar-gate, but he is closed! I daren't ride with the existing rim damage, so thought that I best pull out. Bit peed off as I've been working away for the last 3 weeks :-(. I will still give you money for the gatehouse. Hope you all have a good one.

      Hi Craig, that's a bummer, should be fine for scout hall though as the guy is usually fine to just take money for folk that stay

    Do we meet at Mabie or the scout hut tomorrow? And what's the timings?

    October 17, 2013

    • Kev

      Mabie was just a suggestion for folks with the day/afternoon off. I plan to be at scout hall by 7, won't be making Mabie myself. If you are wanting to ride Mabie tomorrow post up what time you'll be there so anyone else that can make it can meet up.

    Kev - as you know I was planning to attend and stay in separate accommodation, but I can't make it now. This shouldn't affect the scout hut places etc., so hope you all have a great ride!

    October 15, 2013

    • Kev

      No problem Nigel, thanks for letting me know.

    I havent stayed here before so wondered what the story was for cooking facilities? hearty brekkie and all that...

    October 8, 2013

    • Kev

      There's a kitchen, some folk cook, some go to a cafe or somewhere on way to trails. Too complicated to group cook

      Cafe at the bottom of the village was really good.. Full Scottish was excellent..

    Due to being a very light sleeper, am planning to book separate accommodation, but looking forward to the group rides. Have cleared this with Kev.
