Anyone fancy a wee mtb exploration of the Penicuik Estate which is a small wooded private estate to the west of Penicuik, Midlothian this weekend.

The estate hosted mtb races BITD and has numerous paths through the woods around the river valley that comprises the estate.

I've checked out various sections and have dragged ZZ, Mikee and RobMac around sections of it but there is probably more than I've seen.

Thought it might be nice to meet up in the visitors carpark and have a wee explore. Parkings free and visitors to the grounds are welcome. Penicuik itself is less than a mile away with shops, cafes and pubs etc.

Any interest ?

Would love to velo but I need to do stuff at the house again as I am away the following weekend with my local group.

I raced there once BITD and it was probably my favourite XC race with fern terrace decents (huge muddy steps) and very tight single track cut through the trees, a really fast course.
