Mountain Biking – all 7 Stanes in 1 week

We are calling all Mountain bike enthusiasts to enter the7 Stanes Challenge… to complete all of the famous seven Stanes – Ae, Mabie, Dalbeattie, Kirroughtree, Glentress, Newcastletown, Glentrool – during this 1 week.

Start gently on the Big Country Route, 58km of green & blue graded trails with testing climbs leading to magnificent views.

Home to some of the best single track in the country including the red graded Twister, a 17km physically demanding loop with some real technical challenges.

Don’t be deceived by its relaxed feel & coastal setting – the rough terrain is home to the Slab, the Terrible Twins & the Volunteer Ridge.

Fly round the Phoenix, a classic trail with testing climbs, fast descents, berms & water splashes. Or the Kona Dark Side 3.8km orange bike park graded trail with elevated wooden sections & loads of granite outcrops –one for the experts!

13.5km of green & blue graded trail, the red graded Ae Line –Scottish Power Renewables Trail, an aggressive freestyle ride & The Shredder, an orange bike park graded downhill ride.

Glentress & Innerleithen
They share a stane & an awesome reputation for having some of the best mountain biking around including some great downhill, freeride & the red graded XC route.

It’s got the lot including a 16km red route with fast, narrow singletrack crossing bridges & boardwalks.

Kirkwood’s cottages are central to them all, and offers the accommodation – sharing cottages but with own bedroom.  We will provide transport when you are here, and all meals are included too – breakfasts, packed lunches and suppers – all for only £890 for the week.
