We offer tuition and guidance from our fully qualified SMBLA (Scottish Mountain Bike Leaders Award) Trail Cycle Leaders.
With great local knowledge they will guide you around the local routes, giving you hints and tips along the way. They may even show you a few hidden gems.
From hourly bike hire to mountain biking holidays, we are sure to have something for everybody.
Galloway Forrest Park
The Galloway Activity Centre lies just on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, offering some fascinating treks right on our doorstep.
A quick ferry across the Loch in our RIB will drop you at the foot of Bennan Hill, the entrance to the "Raiders Road" A gentle cycle through the forest amongst towering pine will bring you to the "Otters Pool" where you can stop for a break and hopefully spot an Otter or two!
This route is great for young families and cyclists who prefer a more relaxing country trek.
