Transport to the Trails. Whether you’re a trail centre rider, or mountain man or woman in search of a neat solution to get you, your luggage and your bike to (or from!) some of Scotland’s best riding, then Andy McKenna’s new venture GO-WHERE might just be what riders are looking for.
GO-WHERE is all about whisking riders off to some of Scotland’s most incredible riding locations in a hassle-free way that ends with tired limbs and huge smiles! You get to new places without any of the hassle-factor of a long drive. With Andy’s encyclopaedic knowledge of Scotland’s riding, GO-WHERE takes away the guesswork, leaving you to hit the trails fresh, knowing you’ll be riding some of Scotland’s tastiest terrain.
GO-WHERE’s based out of the mountain biking mecca of Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders, but offers transport to the trails throughout Scotland. Andy can help you get to Scotland’s mountain biking gems, and as well as day shuttles and transfers, GO-WHERE offers bespoke overnight and multi-day trips throughout Scotland.
All part of the package, GO-WHERE’ll take you where you want, and provide riders with as much route advice as they need to shape up their perfect Scottish MTB safari. Andy can even be your first aid qualified riding ‘buddy’ – someone who knows the trails, and, understands riding in remote locations. And as an ex-bike mechanic, Andy is a bit of an expert when it comes to trailside repairs. For overnight and multi-day trips, GO-WHERE can also provide you with accommodation advice.
Andy hopes his new venture will be just as successful as his accommodation business in Innerleithen – Innerhaven – which has proven particularly popular with mountain bikers looking for a perfectly practical base to explore Southern Scotland. One regular complaint Andy hears, and hopes to alleviate with GO-WHERE is the need for bike friendly transport, not just to collect holiday-makers and their bikes from airports, train stations and ferry terminals, but to help them explore further afield e.g. the other 7Stanes MTB trail centres, or to carry their baggage and bikes on multi-day Highland tours, or bring them back to their base after a leg on a point-to-point adventure. With over thirty years experience of exploring Scotland by bike, Andy hopes the GO-WHERE idea will appeal as much to the avid DIY explorer in need of bike specific transport, as it will to visitors who want to make the most of their limited time in Scotland.
