The VW T6 Kombi proves to be an ideal touring vehicle.
The mountains of Scotland are a draw for many tourists at all times of the year, whether for sight-seeing, walking, skiing or even mountain-biking as staff from Greenhous VW participated in a weekend break in the shadow on Ben Nevis.

Greenhous VW Van Centre staff Rich Haigh, Adam Kilvert and Ryan Evans, along with Pete Milburn and Richard Dudley (customers of theirs at the VW van centre) left the Shrewsbury van centre heading off on a 5.5 hour road trip to Scotland.  Mountain-biking is an important sporting activity for these friends and the challenge of going to Scotland to ride new routes was an exciting thought.

 Ahead was a weekend of mountain biking using a small village on the outskirts of Stirling as their base, and then travelling to various locations throughout Scotland over the weekend. The final destination was a visit to the UK ‘mountain biking Mecca’ of Fort William on Saturday afternoon where they tackled the Giant XC track from top to bottom of Ben Nevis. Everyone made it down without major issues other than the odd fall!

 The group travelled in a VW T6 kombi which provided comfortable accommodation for all 5, with their luggage and 5 bikes, using the VW bike rack for extra carrying capacity.  The VW Transporter in its various guises has become a very common sight at mountain-biking, cycling and moto-cross venues around the country.
