Located at the heart of the Tweed Valley, we are spoilt for choice with regards to the mountain biking on offer. The 7 Stanes trail centres at Glentress and Innerleithen provide purpose built well drained trails which are rideable all year round. Surrounding areas also provide a network of drove roads and natural trails for those riders that prefer their cycling "off piste" whilst taking in the magnificent views.
If you are planning off-road cycling please do remember the Cycling Code: - Ride Responsibly Show respect for all other users, and take care of the environment. - Leave No Trace Practice low-impact cycling to protect trails and avoid wet and muddy trails. Keep to the line of existing trails, avoid skidding and take your litter home. - Control Your Bike Stay focussed, check your speed, and think about other people. - Always Give Way Let people know you are there. Pass wide and slow, particularly with horse-riders and approach with caution on blind corners and descents. - Avoid Disturbing Animals Farm, pet and wild animals are startled by sudden noise, be considerate. - Always Plan Ahead Know your bike, your equipment, your ability and the area, and wear appropriate safety gear, and helmet.
