Last Sunday I headed of for a five day 7 stanes trip with some friends. I will write up full reports for all the centres but in the meantime a quick overview. Staying at the fantastic Urr Lodge Hostel. On Monday we headed up to mabie forest to ride the red route. This was a nice warmup for the rest of the week and had some quality riding. On Tuesday we went to kirroughtree this was an inspired choice as all the lads had a great time shredding the twister red route. On Wednesday we took the long drive to newcastleton and while the blue and red routes where both fun and exiting for the distance travelled we would have been better riding one of the closer by centres. On Thursday we road Dalbeattie red in the pouring down rain at this was great fun especially the scree slope near the start of the trail. On our final day of riding we went to Ae and rode the red route there this was a decent route but not my favourite. I hope you’ll agree the next 5 reports will be rather intresting. In total we biked around 115km around 73% of that was singletrack and what a week it was!
