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 starts next to St Lukes

The trail is on the edge of Barrhead and open all year.
