Hi folks

I am based up in the north east and snow and ice are making me angry! Unable to get bike fix.

Does anybody know if southern scotland/northern england is ok to do any low level singletrack riding?

Was thinking maybe south of Ayr near Cluzean Castle? I assume the trail centres will be snowbound due to the hight altitude?

I have been riding up here when possible but its either too deep (3 feet) or too icey and hard packed to be enjoyable.

Any advice, route ideas would be great!

I there will be about 10 of us decending on whatever location is rideable!

All the best for Xmas and new year folks

Dave
