Newcastleton (7 Stanes trails)

Close to the Scotland-England border, Newcastleton has trails for all levels.

There is plenty of fun to be had here on routes shorter than at most of the other 7stanes.

Dalbeattie (7 Stanes trails)

With its coastal setting and the lack of any big hills, Dalbeattie has a relaxed feel.

However the riding is far from dull - the outcrops of rock and fine views make sure of that.

Kirroughtree (7 Stanes trails)

Kirroughtree, home to some of the best technical singletrack in the country.

Winner of the MBR Trail of the Year in 2010, Kirroughtree is also a favourite family venue with a wide range of trails, seasonal café and a great children’s play area.

Lower gears on a road bike

Question Detail: 
I am recovering from a recent heart attack and need to lower the gears on my Specialized Roubaix. Current drivetrain is Shimano 105 with compact double chainset. I’ve looked at the option of using a 10-speed 12–36 cassette with a 9-speed mountain bike mech. Would smaller rings be another possibility? Or a triple chainset? From CTC supporter, John Plant

Dalby Forest, North York Moors National Park

You'll find an excellent selection of trails within Dalby Forest, catering for all abilities. Cycle Hire is also available from 'Purple Mountain'.
