OK time to step up proceedings! gmac and me rode the black the other day, mostly good but the red now has a significant diversion in it just after the lake :? Clocked the whole route at about 10miles and a couple of hours, could be a long way to travel for some for a relatively short course?

Any ideas?

Does it have much climbing?

A ride with 30-40 riders usually takes twice as long as it does with 5 or 6 riders! (especially if there's a bit of climbing)

So long as the trails are good fun the distance shouldn't be a major issue. Can you extend the route? or is there another trail to ride there?

Rick did talk about other trails close by, might be worth scouting out one ride in the morning, different run in the afternoon? Happy to call him and go down to scout another run?

is it 10 miles for both the Red and Black now? or could we combine them to make it longer?

could we incorporate a few of the non MTB routes to extend it, they might not be hard but they sound nice... http://www.drumlanrig.com/drumlanrig-ou ... cle-routes
