MTB Track Challenge Scotland
Looking for a challenge? You are already an experienced mountainbiker but want to sharpen your techniques? Discover our MTB Track Challenge 7-day trip in Scotland!
What does the program look like?
From Friday the 19th of June until Saturday the 27th of June we'll travel to Scotland for a training of five days with six overnight stays on location and two overnight stays on the ferry.
We'll discover the unique trails of 5 of the 7 Stanes during the driest and warmest period of the year in Scotland!
During our first trainingday we'll focus on getting acquainted with the basic-trails and offer a technique-training to become familiar with the terrain.
We'll look bit by bit for more challenging trails on the second, third, fourth and fifth trainingsday in the other parks where the level of difficulty will increase slightly. The focus of these trainingdays we'll be on (learning) to ride the trails with applying the right techniques in a relaxed athmosphere at the pace of the group.
We'll stay at a central-located hotel so we don't need to make long transfers to our traininglocations in the parks of 7 Stanes. The stay is based on a half-board stay.
For lunch we'll visit local restaurants near our trails where we can enjoy delicious local dishes.
The journey to and from Scotland will be by ferry between Zeebrugge and Hull with an overnight stay in cabins per four people with breakfast included. The journey and the local transport will be by minivan which means we don't depend on external transportation.
