Event description

Description

Who's keen for another FINDRA social ride?

We'll meet at The Glentress Peel Cafe, just outside of Peebles, for a 9.30 start. We'll take in some of the trail sights for about 2 hours and then it's off for a coffee and cake at the cafe we started at!


This will be a BLUE level Trail Centre ride. This means it is suitable for riders in good health with basic off-road biking skills. Suitable for basic mountain bikes. There are some single track sections and small obstacles of root and rock.

Bikes must be in good working order.

People should carry a spare inner tube and know how to change a tyre.

Riders should also ensure they have snacks and water, a first aid kit, spare layers and waterproofs.

This is a Social Ride and everyone is responsible for their own safety.


If you're new to mountain biking but know how to ride a bike and comfortable with uneven surfaces, please do come along! If you're an old hand at mountain biking but want to make new friends and share the joy of coffee and cake after a ride, then please do also come along too. All genders welcome.

If you haven't got a mountain bike, you can hire a mountain bike from Alpine Bikes which is right next to the Peel Cafe and come along and join in the fun before you make the dive into buying your own bike. Check out their website for more details: https://www.tweedvalleybikehire.com

The car park at Glentress has a charge: £3.50 for 3 hours, £5 for a full day. It's advised that you bring change, but card payment is available. There is a bus service which sometimes has bike facilities. The route is the X62 from Edinburgh - Melrose. Check out the lothian buses website for further details: https://www.bordersbuses.co.uk/bike-friendly-journeys


Please RSVP so we know how many to expect and so that we don't head off without you.

See you there!
