Mountain bike trails in Barrhead and at Whitelee windfarm.
Mountain Bike in Barrhead
Mountain bike ace Katy Winton, the under 18 British champion, opened East Renfrewshire's first mountain bike track. The fantastic trail in Barrhead right next to St Luke's High School was designed by the internationally renowned team who created the Beijing Olympics and Glasgow Commonwealth games courses.
The trail is a fun rather than full on ride. Built for younger riders and families who want to get their bikes off road for that extra challenge. At 800 metres it's a pocket sized course but packed with features like berms, bumps and bends to give intermediate riders a great introduction to Scotland's fastest growing sport.
The trail is on the edge of Barrhead and open all year.
