Great quality bike. Bike trails could do with numbers on ALL posts - we started at Glentress Peel and had difficulty getting to buzzard nest car park. Locals directed us in the end. Main criticism of cycle hire was you get the bike and helmet but nothing else- no saddle bag with inner tubes spares or tyre levers, no bike... More

Glentress is blessed with stunning scenery in the low mountains of the Scottish Borders. The soil drains very well and although most parts of the trails have a man-made surfacing to improve the drainage further they retain a natural feel.
