Glenshee Blue Route
A new lift assisted mountain bike trail has just opened at the Glenshee Ski Centre in bonny Scotland. Set in the Southern Cairngorms, close to the major Scottish cities, the new trail offers stunning and climbing free riding in a thankfully midge free environment. Use of the chairlift costs £15/day for adults and £12/day for juniors or an adult single run is £5 and £4 for juniors. The track is open from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, 7 days a week, see www.ski-glenshee.co.uk for info or type Glenshee into multimap for location. They have plans to develop new tracks in the future, so head up and support what has the potential to be an amazing mountain bike destination. Here’s a little taste of what’s up there..
Glen Nevis River Race 2010: No Fuss Events
Okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with riding bikes apart from the organisers No Fuss being the people behind Ten Under The Ben and this weekend’s Endurance Downhill at Fort Bill. Anyway, as the organisers say, what could be more fun than racing down Glen Nevis River in Fort William on a lilo? I presume being dry, warm and not being beaten by rocks or partially drowned isn’t an valid answer. Thanks to Stu from MTBCut for the vid..
No Fuss Endurance Downhill
Talking of endurance downhilling, Benji and Matt will be entering (on their trail bikes) so we might as well give you a little video about what they’re letting themselves in for.
That’s all for this week – what happened to you lot making your own? If the rain hasn’t put you off, send anything interesting you have made or seen to firstname.lastname@example.org..
