South Liddesdale Off-Road Biking Society (SLOBS)



Welcome to South Liddesdale Off-Road Biking Society.

SLOBS gatheringWe are a group of mountain bikers in Newcastleton who like going out and about in Newcastleton and the surrounding area.There are eight 7stane trails in the South of Scotland plus a number of trails at Kielder which accommodate all types of abilities from a steady quiet ride to a more challenging ride over rocks and up and down steep slopes.

So don’t worry if you’re not up to speed on the fitness side of things, we’ll go out at your speed and your level.

We recently did a 21 mile bike ride to Kielder through the forest with a rider who hadn’t done much biking lately and wasn’t too fit and he said he was pleased he came and that he would like to do it again, so it proves you don’t have to be an athlete to ride a bike.

If you are visiting Newcastleton, then there are a number of places to stay including Woodside B+B which is owned by Mike Bogg, a member of the SLOBS team. You can contact Mike on 013873 75431 or email him at

SLOBS polo shirts are also available from Carlisle Embroidery on request.

It is recomended that all riders wear suitable protective clothing and helmets and that SLOBS will not be responsible for any damage or injury that may occur.
Have a look at the Gallery to see photos of SLOBS in action.
