Ace, Saturday it is then...

We're aiming to be in the bottom carpark (at the Peel Café) for about 9:15am and ready to ride for 9:30am.

Usual stuff.... bring some tools/tubes/suitable clothing for the weather/water and some cash for a few eats at the end.

Colin - Saturday is what we were thinking too. Will probably head up to CV to test the bikes/my arm/our state of festive lethargy on Friday too.

Me and Emma will be up for this but only limited availability...

Hi, anyone else fancy a trip to Glentress over the holidays?

I'm free any day apart from the 24th, 25th and 26th.

The trip will be slightly more social than a Strava bagging session with a steady pull from the bottom car park to the top and then plenty of whooping and hollering on the way down. More than happy to spend time sessioning some of the technical features, practicing cornering, a little jumping, etc.

So if you fancy burning off some of the excessive amount of calories you know you're going to be consuming over the next 2-3 weeks or you want to try out that new bike that Santa brought to you add your name to the list with the dates you can't manage...

Looking to be down early for a 9am start and finish around 2pm with the usual visit to the café for a black coffee and glance at the cakes and toasties

Colin C - not 24th - 25th - 26th
Paul M - not 24th - 25th - 26th - 30th - 31st
Steven M - not 24/25/. 28/29/30 :(
Graham B - not 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 31st
Sandra E - (ditto)
Alexander - (ditto)
Helen, Anna, Pete and maybe Chris: not before 30th
Patrick H + Emma - 27th or 28th

That sounds awesome! My sister and her boyfriend are coming up and are keen to go to Glentress. We are around 30th, 31st and 1st (starting the New Year as we mean to go on!).

(Edited to add: we will probably be MTBing all three days, weather and my bad arm permitting! I will post up but basically all welcome. At least one day will probably involved Comrie Crofts.)
