Scandal in the forest of Glentress

British news logo

The commercial aspirations of the Forestry Commission crushed the dreams of an inspirational pair of cyclists last week when it was announced that the owners of the Hub in the Forest are to be kicked out of the Glentress Forest cycling business that they created.

The phrase 'victims of their own success' has seldom been so apt - former world-class mountain bikers Emma Guy and Tracy Brunger have built up the Hub in the Forest facility in Scotland over the past ten years into an extremely popular destination for cyclists from all over the country and beyond, paving the way for similar facilities all over the UK.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
