Ladies! Do you find yourself riding the same riding spots all the time or wishing you could try somewhere new but are unsure if your ability fits the location or where to go once you get there?
Glower Rides are a series of events for women (which guys are welcome to tag along to – no barriers here!) we’re holding this year to help introduce riders of beginner to intermediate levels to new awesome riding spots.
The days of riding are aimed at getting you to progress your riding, try something new and expand your network of riding buddies. Each location you’ll be hosted by a friendly local female, so you can tap into their experience and always have a contact when you want to return.
Please note that these rides are not coaching sessions, but social rides aimed at exploring new places and connecting with fellow riders.
The fourth and final stop on the Glower Rides tour will take us north, over the border to Scotland. We’ll be hitting up some beautiful Scottish trails by Katy Winton’s home in the infamous Tweed Valley at Glentress Trail Centre, Peebles (EH45 8NB).
Host for the day will be Glower Ambassador, Diana McLaren. Growing up slap-bang in the middle of Scotland in Stirling, Diana knows a thing or two about Scottish trails, racing downhill and is currently under the wing of the Scottish Downhill Association’s academy for this year. She’s the perfect person to guide us around the chilled and fun trails of Glentress and share her local knowledge.
This will be a longer day in the saddle, but brilliant for intermediate riders who want to explore red-level trails somewhere new and possess a reasonable level of fitness - it will be approx 3hrs in the saddle.
