Our cyclists enjoyed a range of experiences across the 4 days, with the vast majority opting for our perfect mix of leisurely cycling and some fast-paced, adrenaline pumping mountain biking located within the wonderful backdrop of Pollok Country Park. From enjoying the wonderful scenery on offer to getting extremely muddy on the beginner, intermediate and advanced mountain biking courses, there really was something for everyone. Some of our more experience mountain bikers instead chose to join us for a full-day of extreme trekking through Glentress Forest in Peebles, where our guests were really put through their paces by our expert mountain-bike instructors. From high-end skills training on the technical courses through to flying amongst the forest trails, this mountain-biking adventure was certainly for the brave, and wow did they enjoy it!
As many of our guests tackled our selection of outdoor activities for this year, it was the turn of Denise and her colleagues to step indoors for their kicks. The beautiful Norton House Hotel in Midlothian would, once again, play fantastic host to one of our famous Pressure Zone events. 4 teams battled it out, head to head across an array of tense, challenging activities, all in pursuit of one dream. Being the latest in a long line of legends to lift the illustrious Team Challenge Company Winners trophy. Team Google, The Gofers, The Arctic Monkeys and Team Cola-Cubes knew if they could hold their nerve, the acclaim would ultimately be theirs. The Gofers stormed into an early lead after blowing away the competition on Flop It. The Monkeys were also left hanging as they couldn't master the tricky Landing Strip game. Google searched for a way to glory with a measured approach on the most difficult opener, The Index. Cola-Cubes battled away and found some success in perseverance as we reached the half way mark. After a lovely lunch everyone knew a final but successful assault on the remaining challenges would ensure they would at least be in the running for top prize...!
