Hi everyone! This weekend saw almost 300 riders take over the hills of Tomintoul for round 3 of the Scottish Enduro Series at Glenlivet Bike Park. The weekend consisted of trail centre type trails with a few new trails added for the race.
Glenlivet Bike Park is located in the north aspect of the Cairngorms, just outside the small town of Tomintoul. The Glenlivet trails are about 30km in total, with a blue and red trail, complemented with a range of additional natural trails to the outskirts of the main centre. Glenlivet trail centre has a good cafe and 24 hour toilets (perfect if you are staying overnight in a van or camping).
Whilst the trails at Glenlivet are not massively expansive, the Lecht is about 20 minutes away and has a couple of chair uplifted trails, so these may be a good 2 to join up on a trip, or visiting independently if passing though to go north.
The race itself took in over 30km of local trails and transitions, with lots of pedalling and good weather throughout. Photos from the race can be found here.
This weekend I am going a course with Dirt School, hopefully they can get me out of my bad habits!
