Singletrack Issue 141 Cover
Did you think we’d forgotten? No, we’re just saving it for a tasty final dessert! All this issue’s stories will be wrapped up in yet another great cover shot from Pete Scullion:
- Rider: Scott Lyndsay
- Location: Stob Coire an Lochain
There might not be a steeper way to bag two Munros. Stob Binnein and Ben More from Inverlochlaraig is a fierce day out with a real emphasis on the vertical. 8500ft in seven and a half miles really tested the legs, but for brief moments where the contour lines spread out, the ridgeline singletrack was some of the best I’ve ridden. Scott makes moves back towards the car and the promise of a fish supper.
