Glentress mountain biking centre

A recent trip to the Scottish borders gave us the opportunity to visit one of the UK's mountain biking Meccas.  The Glentress mountain bike centre nestles between Peebles and Innerleithen and has some of the best riding I've seen.

A great facility with bike shop, cafe, toilets, showers, etc. is at the trailhead and a selection of routes from Green through to Black grading are available.

There's plenty of climbing to do, so you'll need strong legs but the descent is worth every turn of the crank.

I've put together a little video showing just some of the fast, winding, sweeping singletrack on the way back down the mountain.
