Following the Committee changes it’s taken a while to get the new process for this year’s subs organised (apologies). We have now set up the online membership payment for this year’s membership fees. As agreed at the AGM we’re keeping the prices the same as last year; that is £15 for new members/students and £25 for existing members. Please submit your payment by BACS (either by online or phone banking or in person via your branch) and then complete the form to notify us that you have paid. Details of how to make your payment are contained within the form. You can access the form either through the Membership page on our website or by going directly via the link below:
As mentioned at the AGM, we’re pleased to announce that GMBC are hosting the 2nd round of the Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering Spring League, sponsored by Alpine Bikes, on Saturday 20th April at Mugdock Country Park.
If you are unfamiliar with MTB orienteering (called Trailquest in the past) then the objective is to visit as many of the 30 checkpoints as possible within the 3 hour time limit. The event is within a defined area and a map and list of checkpoints will be provided on the day. It’s up to you which route you ride so you take in as many checkpoints before your 3 hours is up.
The event is open to adults and children over the age of 15 (or over the age of 12 as part of a generations team). You can enter as a solo or a pair. There will be a fantastic selection of prizes & spot prizes for competitors. The event is now available to enter via this BMBO page.
Prices to enter the event are as follows: Continue reading
We’re aware of a problem getting logged in to the website and are trying to fix it. We’ll post an update when we know more.
NB: You may want to try the WordPress mobile app in the meantime. It seems fairly simple to use, if a bit limited.
Hi there – we’re doing our 3rd trail maintenance session of the Spring this Saturday up at Mugdock Park. Although the trails are bone dry at the moment there’s still some remedial work to do for when the weather turns. If you are planning on coming then please can you let me know by either posting up here or dropping me an email.
The plan for the weekend is as follows:
Meet: Craigallian Bridge Car Park
Time: Start at 10am, finish by 2:30/3pm. Continue reading
Trails are dry and dusty and a blast to ride at the moment. Thinking 745 main car park ready to ride. We can get 3 laps in plus some natter time in 2 hrs.
Post up if you fancy it

Just thought I’d echo Betty’s comment – what an amazing weekend away! Thanks to all who made it a great trip. Chris for booking it, all the chefs & cake suppliers, all the route finders & map readers and Fay & Betty for the awesome Easter snacks! Here’s some photos and links to more…..
I’ve added some more details for the Torridon weekend in May for those that are going. For anyone feeling like they’ve missed out, it would be great if you can make it. The Youth Hostel is fully booked but there is camping / B&Bs / hotel locally.
PS If anyone know that any of the suggested routes are bonkers / cursed / awful please post up!
After the amazing scenery of yesterdays ride I was doubtful that we’d top it but todays ride has been equally scenic. The ride was round the Duirnish Peninsula.
A sunny day, 10degrees and blue skies! Wish u were here??
