Anyone fancy this one? 52km off road ride, long climb followed by the hairiest singletrack descent in the world. Spoke to rik about this one and he recommended it, he enthused very much about the descent, very very much :)

Location: Falkirk! But I am a Fifer so that's OK...
Could also be interested, would like to see a bit more of that part of the country, the drive over from the motorway to Drumlanrig is splendiferous.

Any more details, route, date, etc?

I'll try to edit the route description, and I'll need to buy a map. It does start at Drumlanrig though. It sounds great though as I said the singletrack descent is meant to be narrow and cliffy :o

I'm up for it if it does not clash with anything I'm doing. Bike events seem to be pretty much what my anual leave equates to this year :roll:

It'll be a day trip anyway. I've updated the turnoots thread a bit, should see some gaps forming. If anyone wants anything edited or added give us a shout.
