Thanks very much, really great to hear it was enjoyed so much.

I'm still here about to head off to start collecting the signage (which will probably be done tomorrow as I'm needing a bath)!

Thanks.

Richard. That was BRILLIANT. Huge credit to you for a most wonderful route - paths, tracks, and variety that I would not have known was there.

Some local knowledge helped a bit (thanks Colin!) .....but the west option well signposted (ok, so we went wrong at the Broch ....just wanted a few extra rooty descents!!

To anyone reading - do this next year if its on- the soup and sandwiches alone make it worth it. Mountain bike or cross bike ...either perfect!

Thanks again Richard!

Nigel

Cheers,

I do, but I'm not sending the route out until Thursday night for the entrants and will make it available after Sunday for those who want to ride it themselves...I'm trying to help raise some money for trail development and maintenance so happy to share the route after the event.

Cheers,

Nigel

Very...but also depends on the rider's abilities. There is 1 section of about 2km that would be considered technical but I've seen it being ridden by cx bikes.
Beth, you'd be done in 3.5 hours so time to do the ride and birthday celebrations! ;-) (however, have a great birthday celebration!)

Richard

Given some of us are preparing for the 3 Peaks CX in Sept .......how feasible would this event be on a CX bike???? I'm tempted ......anyone else??

Cheers,

Nigel

Just a gentle reminder if anyone is fancying a slightly different mtb ride this Saturday...

Hi,

I'm organizing the Falkirk 100 ride on 19th August. It is intended to help raise funds to allow more development at Callander Estate trails, but also to highlight the great network of trails in the Falkirk area. It is a figure-of-8 route so could have 100Km or a 50Km route (if you don't fancy doing the full distance).

Tickets can be purchased from Eventbrite - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/falkirk-100-2017-tickets-35155004565?aff=es2 - and the ride is open to anyone.

This isn't a race and it isn't guided, there are signs directing the route, but it starts at the bike trails at Greenrig, goes round them and then heads off towards Hallglen/Westquarter/The Helix/Larbert/Camelon/Falkirk Wheel and back to Greenrig; then it heads round the trails and then over to Bonnybridge/Denny/Dunipace/Torwood/Larbert/Camelon/Falkirk Wheel and then back to Greenrig.

The entry fee also includes soup and sandwich at the halfway stage (for the 100km) or the end point (for the 50Km).

A great way to discover some new trails almost on the doorstep, but also might be a good ride for some Warriors who might be looking for a day out on the bike with their parents.

Cheers.
