Glentress Open & Ready to Uplift this Easter
Glentress, the UK’s busiest trail centre, in the Tweed Valley, Scottish Borders is preparing for the Easter holidays with an announcement that all grades of trail will be open and there will be uplift available to help businesses running holiday camps and family’s access some of the best trails in the UK.
From Monday 3rd April to Sunday 16th April, thanks to Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland (DMBinS) and support from Scottish Borders Council and Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS), there will be an uplift service running to help visitors and young/new riders access the trails from the Buzzards Nest car park. The car park and freeride area will be handed over to Forest Holidays to begin their investment into the area on April 3rd 2023, as such, riders will not be able to drive to Buzzards Nest but will be able to use the uplift.
The uplift, provided by Adrenalin Uplift, will work on a timetable where businesses who are running Easter camps will take priority at certain times of day and the rest of the time riders will be served on a first-come-first served basis.
Graeme McLean, Head of DMBinS, explains:
“We are delighted to work with partners, Scottish Borders Council and Forestry and Land Scotland, to help deliver a fantastic experience by offering funded uplifts to get new and inexperienced riders to the existing trails, such as Berm Baby Berm, which are amongst the best blue graded trails in the UK.
These will be added to when the new trails open at the Peel Centre later this year. Over the Easter period, it is fantastic that we can provide uplift for riders and those attending holiday camps to get them to the trails they want to ride.
We know how important holiday camps are for local businesses. The businesses providing these camps have helped the Tweed Valley gain its global reputation for delivering quality mountain bike experiences.
Also, with trails open across the Tweed Valley we are sure that riders all of abilities will have plenty to enjoy over the busy Easter holidays.”
Weekday uplift will run between 10.45 - 3.30 each day with an hour reserved from 13.15 - 14.15 for coaching companies.
With weekend uplift will be provided from 9.30 - 3.30pm on a first come first served basis. All being provided by Adrenalin Uplift.
Adrenalin Uplift will continue to run its normal service to the Spooky Wood climb/bench that can be booked online.
