The Three Glens Route and a Vintage MTB



The Three Glens Route and a Vintage MTB

A mountain bike trail in the national park for something different today and some great fun

When I dusted down my bike I was thinking it was a tad old – that was until Gerry appeared on his classic Specialized Mountain Bike from last century. To be fair though , it did the job and we both got round having lots of fun and adventures en route.

    I bought a very expensive Cannondale carbon full suspension MTB… and it's been nothing but trouble, stick to the old bike is my advice. Thanks for posting, enjoyed watching, thumbs up.

    I now own a Specialized MTB (relatively modern version) but I reckon you guys will still give me a run for my money.

    I'll bet you a pound to a penny you pushed up the top part of Glen Kendrum after the stream crossing although you have probably edited that out ya bugger ye.
    This is my local riding patch and the proper run is the five glens. Glen Ogle, Glen Kendrum, Glen Dubh, Glen Dochart and finally Kirkton Glen. Basically you head along the old Glen Dochart railway after the Glen Dubh descent and head up to Rob Roy's putting stone at the top of Kirkton Glen then wheeching down to Balquidder (Lots of man made MTB tracks in Kirkton glen to add a bit of spice) From Balquidder you just head for the sustrans track all the way up Glen Ogle. (I prefer starting and finishing at Balquidder.
    The wee three glen route was my cross country training circuit.

    Hi Murray, I have spent a bit of time around Killin and the Maragowan campsite. The Falls of Dochart pub does great food. I've walked a bit in the forest with the dogs between where you parked and Killin village. A lovely part of the country. I must remember the cycle route. Thanks for sharing Cheers

    Interesting watching this with the subtitles switched on: the voice recognition does a "creative" job.
