the kids are alright


Ride it like you stole it…

Just Ride

Rioting, looting and general disorder on the streets-its been a week of incredible scenes across the UK and some fellow independent bike shops in the UK Capital have suffered at the hands of mindless thievery- Micycle, Evans, and Geoffrey Butlers to name a few.  Its been pretty quiet in Scotland thankfully, although rioting in the rain might not have the same appeal…

We’ve still got some dates/spaces for some kid’s skills courses for later in the holidays-click here for more details.

For families for summer we’ve got our family hire deal 2 adults + 2 kids = £50.  Kids must be 12 and under to qualify.  This deal is limited so your best bet is to call and prebook-just quote the family deal.  Kids hire (under 12) is just £10 a day and we use the best kids bikes available-Islabikes -don’t settle for anything less!

If you are just down to ride and aren’t familiar with the trail network at Glentress then pop into The Hub shop or cafe and we will be more than happy to advise you- we are a rider run company and we’ve been in business at Glentress for 10 years-its our backyard.  Our cafe at Glentress has a massive reputation for its great food-we are totally committed to using local produce and baking our own cakes on the premises- our portions are biker sized too-so you won’t go hungry.

Some of you may know that this is our last year at Glentress-our lease with the forestry commission runs out in March 2012 and we were unsuccessful in tendering for the new £9M building at Glentress-(read about it here).  We are working on some plans for the future and are not quite sure where we will be yet but we intend to have a fun last summer at Glentress and continue to do what we’ve always done – to offer great quality and service so that your day at Glentress is one that you’ll remember.

Emma & Tracy.
