    Of those two I would pick Cathkin Braes, a lot closer to the city and although its a shorter loop it pack a lot more in

    I would go via Mabie or Dalbeattie on the way up if possible. Cathkin is good but not a huge amount to it. Carron would be a pain in the arse to get to in rush hour.

    Oh and if the weather is alright you could still be riding till about 10:30 without lights.

    yeh I’d add that to the list. Any of the 3 are easy from the m74.

    Ae is even easier to get to from the M74. But it seems about as popular as a ginger headed stepchild round this parish.

    Not sure why I quite like the place myself

    Nice, I had quick look at the 7 stanes website and figured I might as well leave a bit earlier and do the red route at Glentress and then I’ll get to play around in the free ride park afterwards which should be a bit of fun. Weathers looking great as well so should get a good long stint there as well.
    I’ve got to go to Leeds for Friday as well so I’m going to have a run around Whinlatter on the way down from Glasgow on Thursday night as well. Good bless work related trips near trail centres 🙂

    Hi All,

    Are there any trail centre’s within about 30 minutes of Glasgow.

    I’m driving up there on Wednesday for work but should get there with about 3 hours of light left, enough for a quick blast around somewhere any way).

    Any help appreciated.

    cheers

    Depend what you want really. If you just want 1-2hrs good blast on your bike with minimum faff I’d say Cathkin. If you can bothered with a minor detour on the way up Drumlanrig is a great place to ride, lovely woodland singletrack.
