Go-Where, a new mountain bike taxi service operating in Scotland, has been chauffeuring riders to and from the trails despite the recent bad weather.
Riders have been queuing up to hit the snow-covered trails, according to company director Andy McKenna, who knows the best routes to all the well known tracks, as well as some of the less well worn off-road paths.
Andy said: “Riders are extra keen to hit the trails, whether it’s the perennial favourites – Innerleithen, Glentress or Kirroughtee – or some of the TweedValley’s hidden gems. For the adventurous, Torridon and Kinlochleven never disappoint those with the will to hit the delights of northern Scotland.”
Based at Innerleithen, the Go-Where taxi has a trailer to carry bikes and plenty of room inside the van for all your kit. Airport transfers are available too, and the service is very flexible. We’re looking forward to a visit north very soon.

If you’re planning a trip, Andy’s got some words of advice: “Don’t put away the gimp-suit just yet. There may be a thaw on but it’s still sub-zero up here so you still need to wrap up well. The good thing is that the trails are beginning to show through, and under the trees where the more discrete stuff is, you’ll find the trails riding nice: soft on the top layer, with a firm base. Just watch those turns on the icy patches.”
Sounds ace. Head to the Go Where website for more information.
