I remember Glen Ample being one of my first real mountain bike routes that I done years ago on an old rigid Kona Cinder cone with U brakes. I then proceeded to ride it loads of times over the years until it fell out of favour with me for around five years until I recently rode up Glen Ample on a Bikepacking trip and thought to myself “Must revisit this route to reacquaint myself with the descent” so it was put on the “To do again” list. 

Mist murk and drizzle was on the menu but that didn’t deter us too much as it had to clear at some point (Hadn’t it) but as it happened, it did clear after we got soaked on the climb up

Anyhoo some pics of a once popular old traditional route (which is made even better extending it by climbing up Glen Vorlich and descending to Glen Artney, then Callander to make a much tougher day out)

A misty Loch Lubnaig.

Mountain biking can be dangerous and is done entirely at your own risk
