Exact location to be confirmed

Who inspires you to ride a bike? Who do you inspire to ride? Aneela McKenna from Go Where Scotland will lead you on a beautiful ride out to a little bothy in the middle of nowhere in the Scottish Borders. When you arrive the stove will be fired up to keep everyone warm and cosy.

Aneela will share stories of the audacious women who have inspired her to ride and will invite you to share yours. Everyone has a story to tell and this event aims to bring together like-minded women to share their inspirational stories and to help bring out the best of each other.  

You will need to be able to ride for 3-4 hours, with the technical ability to ride the reds and blues at Glentress forest.

Please bring a mountain bike, a helmet, warm clothes, a packed lunch and camping cup and, of course, your stories.

Exact location will be provided closer to the time. Please note that this event is weather dependent and notice will be provided should the event have to be cancelled.
