New cathkin braes trails
The new £940,000 investment in Cathkin Braes opened yesterday so it would be rude not to visit. The orange trail is not opened yet due to a health and safety concern.
The new trails consist of a stunning velo solutions pump track, a small skills area with various levels of difficulty, an orange graded jump trail along with a new blue and red trail.
There is also a new car park with toilets appearing soon.
The blue trail is called Doon the Clyde; The red trail is called Highland jig; the orange jump track is called Air space; While the climb is called Nae Bother.
