Hi. I've just realised how far this is. I somehow originally thought it was near Glentress, then found out exactly where it is.
I won't be there :(

Its pretty mellow, more a blue than a red, but with a funpark section at the end which can be rocky in places. Short lap with gentle climbs/downs...

Good stuff Dave, was getting worried about bringing a rigid singlespeed as everyones bringing sus.


Well my Clockwork is rigid, got gears though but it's a small road cassette and no granny ring so i was hoping there'd be no major climbs :) .

no worries P20, I was quite suprised you could make it with the distance and weather involved, but the glentress meets are worth it simply for the cakes :) so we'll see you at the next one.
