I don't know if it just me, but I live bang in the middle of the 7 Stanes so ride them a lot.
I can't help think it is one or two people off here who over do this "look at all the people at trail centres who are all Look at me on my bling bike" business. Never come across it myself.
Chatted to a very nice at Ae coffee shop this morning before setting off. Chatted to another lass while waiting for the Pyes towards the end of Kirroughtree. Saw a good few kids and jumpy types at Glentress and everyone was Hello and no don't mind us. Awesome.
So yeah, I never have come across people who are all show offy.
Trail centres are brill for people like me and there's plenty of riding away from them for people who dont. So what's the issue
