The local lanes, tracks and trails provide some excellent biking or you can head further afield to some of the organised trails.
7 Stanes – these are seven mountain biking centres spanning the south of Scotland. Two of these are within driving distance of Ballantrae. Bike hire is possible.
Galloway Forest – there are three trails that run through the Galloway Forest. One round Clatteringshaws Loch which follows roads and tracks and has no dramatic up or down hill. A second round Loch Braden with an optional loop to Loch Doon and the third a circular route from Glentrool. See www.forestry.gov.uk/gallowayforestpark for more details.
