    Scottish Mountain Biking Guide (Rumble content!)

    Rumble

    Found an old copy of the SMBG and though I'd scan it for you - front cover Rumble shot!

    http://cycling.visitscotland.com/mou...ing/mb_centre/ has details of the Scottish trail centres, wild riding and brochure requests/downloads. The new SMBG has just come out and has loads of new info, well worth a look if you are planning a trip.

    Cheers,
    Gus

    lol, early spring/summer. They can be very localised; they like sheltered campsites near lochs or damp areas. Stay high and stay windy!

    Oh yes! Actually Sept can be ok if you are out east or far north - west tends to be the worst. Avon Skin so Soft is the locals favourite - it's a dry oil spray - doesn't repel them (nothing does!) but stops them biting as you have a layer of oil on your skin. I find a nice layer of mud and not smalling too fresh helps lol!
