- DH/enduro trip suggestions for new Edinburgh resident?
Im moving to Edinburgh to study and I’m looking for suggestions of places to make bike trip to.
Typically I’d have time for weekend as it’s nothing to do else after studies. I’d like improve as rider when I push me to limits so visiting a few times in month is not an understatement.
I know some dh tracks as Fort Williams and Innerthlein, still I’d like to find more hidden, understated places.
So far I got suggestions from the guy:
Are there more places I wouldn’t miss? If you happen to know some cheap places to stay over, it’d save time for me to plan.
Thanks in advance!Posted 4 years ago
…and if you’re at Heriot-Watt, they have an mtb club too, with a couple of really keen enduro racers.
Don’t worry too much about finding variety, there’s a ridiculous amount of riding just in the tweed valley, I could ride for a solid week in/around innerleithen alone and not worry about getting bored, and I still don’t know half the trails in the area. Brilliant to have so close by… Though, the public transport from Edinburgh is pretty poor.Posted 4 years ago
Some fierce club competition, I see. 🙂
I’m going to College of Art so I’m limited only to EUCC, huh? 😉
I don’t think about such things and for that matter, I ride like hack. I’m sure none of clubs want me, hehe.
However, I worry about that poor public transport..I heard that owning car in UK is expensive, I guess the option for student is not realistic?
How hard is it to get to those places, mentioned above if we exclude Dunkeld?
Innerleithen sounds exciting.Posted 4 years ago
Fort William, you can do by train from Edinburgh- though it’s not cheap. Glencoe and Pitmedden are, basically, in the middle of nowhere. Very nice nowhere, but still nowhere.
Innerleithen and Glentress are the frustrating ones, they’re only about 40 minutes drive but the transport network just isn’t good for bikes. There’s Bikebus, a bike-specific service that runs down there, good chap…
I couldn’t have afforded to run a car as a student but ymmv. There’s a load of edinburgh riders on here, we used to do regular rides though that’s fallen down a bit this summer, but it should be possible to blag lifts from time to time 😉Posted 4 years agobajsyckelMember
Hej tomasis, välkommen till Edinburgh. Jag bor här nuförtiden och kör till Glentress / Innerleithen (etc.) då och då. DH/Enduro är inte riktigt min grej, men om du vill ha skjuts nångang skriv mig ett mail.
 Svenska är inte min modersmål – min sambo är svenska – och jag nastan aldrig skriva så det är bra för mig att träna… Men engelska är också bra (of course)… [Edit]Posted 4 years ago
