Really enjoyed the trails at Ae although prefer Mabie and Dalbeattie. The cafe is good with a decent selection of hot and cold snacks. Well worth a visit if you haven't been before.

Amazing mountain bike trails at my favourite of the Dumfries and Galloway Seven Staines. Similar to Glentress and Innerleithen but without the crowds of people. Beautiful part of the world.

As is one of the 7 stanes trail centres. I've ridden the red trail a few times and also done an uplift day on the shredder course. The scooter trail is excellent and has some brilliant features and testing descents. The shredder was great fun...More

Back again to challenge The Shredder. The Shredder at Ae is a downhill track for "beginners", but don't let this tag fool you, it is plenty brutal if attacked at speed, with jumps and drop-offs aplenty, a short fire road section takes you onto the...More
