What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
So it will be the second blue Monday of the year. I look forward to seeing some new faces and some old too. You have to start somewhere and this is the place to make a start. It will just be a big loop round Mugdock to get back into the way of things. Despite forestry work almost everything is accessible and in good condition. We will start earlyish so we're back before it's dark... In theory. We might need a single light if it's overcast. You will need a helmet. Don't be a helmet - wear a helmet!
• What we'll do Social night ride round Lennox Forest. Usually a figure of 8 and incorporating some challenging singletrack. All welcome. Please make sure you have lights fully charged (in winter) and be prepared for all kinds of weather. Starting from Ferguson park we will cycle along the old railway line paved path and up towards Lennox Castle. We will ride a short loop and then head up to the highest part of the forest for the final descent. The ride will take around 2 hours and we will ride at the pace of the slowest rider and wait at points for everyone to regroup. There is no pressure to ride technical sections above your level and we want everyone to have a safe, enjoyable ride.

Cathkin Braes every Tuesday Night 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 some nice single track. Although graded as Red, this course is a great wee introduction to the trail centers that can be found all over Scotland. Tuesday night is for everyone and we are happy to go at the slowest persons pace...[or break into 2 groups]. You're going to need good lights. Meet @ the top car park. It's cold out so please be on time. As usual, no Helmet, no Ride.
