Any riding this weekend, I need some conventional mtb'ing, something to work off lifes frustrations.
Maybe ZZ's circuit if he was up for leading us ?
Blairadam also or some such or even around my gaff if anyone could be bothered coming over.
Been a bad week and its only Tuesday, I need some mud plugging time :|

Let me check with Keri and see what day is better this weekend, but happy to lead a bimble around my local trails if everybody fancies a change. It's certainly no Blairadam, but you'll know you've been out on a bike by the end of it.

It looks like a lot of mileage, but there's canals, green lanes, fire-road type climbs, etc. Cafe stop just next to Muiravonside if we fancy it, and of course there is also some schweet Singletrack ('Can I Play with Mudness' at Muiravonside, although it will be a mudbath now), plus the quite fast and top-secret Callendar Park trail to round things off. And let's not forget the industrial waste-land of the Manuel brick works, and the exciting culvert under the railway line for claustrophobes everywhere.

PS. Don't bring a singlespeed.
