« on: January 16, 2016, 10:08:28 am »
I'm taking my daughter down to Stellies tomorrow and will be there for a few days, love to meet some of the local dogs to get the low down on various things. She's very sporty so I need to learn where's the best mountain biking spots, a decent local cycling shop and other such things. Of course more importantly... Where's the best pubs and eating spots for me?

Some very nice bike trails around Stellies.

You could also, ofcourse, hook her up with Wooly's triplets. :thumleft:

We'll chat when we meet.

Lots of leisure place, but also some spots to avoid, even in a small group. Got to unfortunately know these things.

More than welcome to drop me a pm. Know most of the mtb trails and as Dan says, where to be careful and avoid. Any campus related questions, feel free to ask.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!
