Looking for a forum or something where possible holidays could be sorted to bike parks around Europe. i dont have any friends that do downhill or bike park style stuff but group holidays usually end up cheaper. im Aberdeen based but that doesnt really matter. cheers.
There's a good "morzine les gets" forum, just search it in the forum bar at the top

Hi folks,

I'm headed to Edinburgh for a conference in June and have the 22nd set aside for some biking. I won't have a car, but could probably grab one if needed.

I browsed this thread a bit to see what advice had already been given. https://www.progressionbikesscotland.com looks awesome, but is about an hour away. Are there any similar shops/services that run out of Edinburgh itself?

Preferred biking would just be something that gives the Scottish experience - whatever that may be. If I thought I could make Ft Bill, I'd happily ride an iconic park, but I can otherwise ride enough park while at home.

Thanks all! Looking forward to visiting!

Hey mate!

I have just passed my Level 2 MTB guiding qualification and have, this weekend, gone through the 3 day training for level 3 (the highest possible in the UK).

Im looking to take people out to sharpen my craft etc so this sounds like a good opportunity for both of us. Drop me an email at stuartrossmeldrum@gmail.com and we can chat about it. No pressure, always good to get out with a fellow rider either way!

P.S. I know good options for bike rental.

Has anyone posted a bike from Scotland to Ireland (Dublin) before? If so what courier did you use?

Anyone ridden the Rudder or Crows Nest at Dunkeld recently? Says they're quite overgrown as of August on trailforks, was wondering if they're worth riding?

Very overgrown a few weeks back. Shins and forearms bleeding from the gorse bushes lol

Can also vouch for them being in need of a good cutting back.

Rode the rudder today and it was every bit as spikey as the guys said it was, wouldn't bother with those trails. Rake and Ruin is running pretty well apart from one super rutted corner. Electric Beaver was good, just a few big puddles. Did a few bits on Atholl hill and they were all OK.
