Most of our mountain biking lessons, courses and tuition take place at Glentress Forest. With purpose built graded trails, skills loop, freeride park, cafe, showers, parking and really easy access it provides great facilities for our clients. Glentress Forest is only an hour away from Edinburgh and about 90 minutes from Glasgow.
There are great air and rail links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle if you are further afield. We are served by a bus service from Edinburgh but travelling with a bike on public transport is not possible at this time but see Glentress Bike Bus details below. If you travel by public transport then hiring a bike onsite is recommended (advanced booking recommended).
