The Tweed Valley near Peebles is home to Glentress Forest, one of the UK's most popular downhill mountain-biking venues. All routes are constructed to be weather proof and so are rideable all year round. Equipment hire and tuition are available for beginners and improvers. At the Hub Café you'll find route maps, advice, bike hire, spares and a refreshing cuppa and toastie.
A new Mountain Bike Centre for Scotland was launched in June 2014, with aims to help businesses with product development projects, testing and launch events.
