Glentress Trailbuilding


    Why come trailbuilding at Glentress?
    • It's a chance to put something back into the trails – show them some lovin’!
    • Learn some trailbuilding techniques
    • Have a say in what gets built.  Some of the best ideas for trails come at ‘fairy sessions
    • Satisfaction – ride what you helped to build.
    • Can be a good workout – keep in shape, and not in a gym! Feeling worked up about something? A few hours digging will soon have you feeling better!
    • The cakes – some of the ‘fairies are dab hands at home baking.  No, really….
    • The chat – not all about bicycles, honest!
    The ‘Glentress Trailfairies' meet up fortnightly on Saturdays at 9.00am next to the information board in the Osprey car park at Glentress.

    Andy Wardman (the Mountain Bike Ranger) runs the sessions – look out for the black 7stanes pick up.  Tools loaded up, we head up to the site, where Andy explains what we’ll be doing and also demonstrates the techniques involved – no previous experience is needed at all. U12’s need to be accompanied by an adult.  For U16’s we just require a signed letter of consent from a parent/guardian.

    More information and contact details -  contact Andy Wardman on 07900 138901 or email  - or drop by the Ranger’s Office at Glentress and say hello!
