What to do

The passion for mountain biking here is off the scale, there are so many trails that its hard to sum up the number of trails and the quality which draws people from all round the World, from Pros to novices. Just 7km along the railway cycle path is the famous Mountain Bike Trail and Visitor Centre at Glentress Forest.  The path continues to Peebles and is popular with families cycling beside the River Tweed. Innerleithen also has its own DH, XC and Enduro tracks a few pedal stokes away.

We have a passion for and are proud of the area and can share ideas for your visit and we can also advise on the amazing road cycling routes that are virtually traffic free to suit all abilities and make sure you pass the cafes en-route. There are local guides and Mtb Schools to teach techniques and show you the trails to suit your ability should you wish extra advice. More detailed information can be found here.
