Bluish Milngavie - Mugdock - Milngavie route

Usual rules apply, no helmet no ride.

Pootle for those that have been out on their mountain bike and just want to ride.

This will be a relaxed/moderate pace to Mugdock and surrounding areas. 

Route will include forest sections and other single track. Mainly this will be green but there are some technical features so it's rated blue. You should know how to get your bike over rocks and roots. Suggest knee and shin guards are worn. 

Any sections you are not comfortable with you can walk and advice will be available.

Please note that you are responsible for your own safety.

 

We will be stopping at the Mugdock Country Park Visitor's Centre for coffee and a snack so bring cash.  

Make sure your bike is suitable (mountain bike) and in good working order.

Ride aims to last around 3 - 4 hours. However it'll last as long as it lasts.

For ride you NEED to have:

Completely functional mountain bike (brakes, gears etc) fitted with OFF ROAD tyres.

      Drew, suggest some light weight knee and shin guards as those are the places that usually get it. It's easy to come off and land your knee and ouch!

      I have a snowboarding helmet that's no use so still need to get one,saving for something decent. Do you guys use hard knee pads and have most of you got full suspension MTB? I got an old Claude butler hardtail that I'm trying to restore,not to original,but trying to keep it retro.

    Weather looks pants for tomorrow. After getting soaked through last week it might be a deciding factor. Anyone else want to take over if I withdraw?

    If anyone thinks they might not turn up please change your RSVP as there is a waiting list.
    Also, I will most likely be heading down Peebles direction in the afternoon to pick up some forks. I don't mind dropping someone off at Glentress but you'd have to make own way back.
