It's got to be said that winter riding really adds an extra element to the experience, which I thought I'd share. My mate and I decided to ride Laggan Wolftrax over the weekend, which is only a couple of hours away for us "northerners".
Despite the dire weather on the journey, consisting mainly of rain and sleet - as soon as we entered Strath Mashie it cleared and we could see the wolftrax ascending off into a powdered snow line.
The climb was simply stunning. The crags and mountains looking like they had jumped directly out of Skyrim and we were riding on a trail that appeared "un-touched".
After such a fun climb we were rewarded with an interesting descent, with snow and ice adding to some already challenging features. Needless to say we were enjoying it too much to stop to even stop and take a photo.
We'll maybe be looking at some changes to our gear in hindsight but all in all that was one terrific experience I can't wait to repeat.
