- Offroad around west Glasgow
I ride gleniffer braes in paisley quite often . There is enough around to keep you occupied for a couple of hours . You can get from Barrhead over to Elderslie completely off road . For local trails right on the edge of town i reckon its pretty good , although its been a total bog for the last few monthsPosted 5 years agohainmanMember
the kilpatrick hills are a good ride in the summer but as EMC says its kinda boggy the now but still fun,theres a few of us that use the hills quite alot and morePosted 5 years ago
i see a few different groups going up or down when we use the hills…keep us posted to when you move up and we can organise a wee rideOmar LittleMember
The riding in Renfrewshire itself isn’t good enough to travel too but as something local to ride to in the evening it is enjoyable. Although despite saying that i went months without riding most of it last year because of how wet and muddy it was.
There has recently been some hardpack trails built in windyhill woods above elderslie – not mtb specific and not technical would be great if these are eventually extended up the hill a bit so a meaningful loop can be done when the weather is shite, but i dont know if there are any plans for that.
Road riding is pretty good though – amongst the better off road parts of the sustrans cycle network plus lots of quiet lanes to explore that miss out on the busy roads.Posted 5 years ago
