One of the most popular short breaks in our growing arsenal of intrepid mountain biking adventures, the Border Raid„ slingshots riders into the UKs enduro epicentre “ the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders.
Home to the best loved 7Stanes Glentress and Innerleithen trail centres, in 2009 MBR Magazine set out with us in pursuit of the disused, the forgotten and the remote “ and since then the area has become infamous for its off-piste trails and enduro racing scene. Join us on this guided bike adventure and well help you uncover the Enduro World Series gems and a whole lot more besides!
The Tweed Valleys riddled with superb riding “ what well show you are some of the best natural, off-piste and off-map trails in the world.
Youll arrive in the Valley (hopefully) in time for a lovely pub meal and a nightcap before settling down for a great nights rest at your handpicked accommodation “ sleep well because the real fun begins tomorrow!
The variety of riding here is huge, and the quality is consistently nuts! When the sun is shining the Tweed Valleys ridgelines offer riders a commanding perspective of Scotlands wee mountain biking kingdom.
That evening, youll probably give in to the lure of the local pub and enjoy some great grub, a tasty ale and the buzz from shredding some of the funnest descents anywhere.
Five minutes out the door of your fantastic accommodation, youll be picking up your second taste of whats on offer in the Tweed Valley. Well take it easy on the climbs, keeping plenty in the tanks for the good bits. Tight, rooty, steep singletrack descents are the rewards for some serious climbing!
