- Glencoe Red
We had a day on Glencoe about a month ago now.
The black was in a poor state of repair and whilst not specifically closed, they’d tried hard to discourage you from riding it by placing a makeshift barrier where it leaves the red.
As a result, the red was getting a LOT of use and it was suffering a bit.
I haven’t ridden there previously, so can’t say if anything was “new” but it all looks well bedded in.
TBH, it’s just a lumpy rocky blast, with very little in the way of features. We sacked it off after a few hours and rode the Devil’s Staircase over to Kinlochleven instead.
Rode Fort William WC track the next day and thought that was 1000 times better.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
The black got hammered over the last winter. It’s a bit unfair to call the red an access road- it’s technically correct as it’s used for access, but that really gives the wrong impression. They ran an SDA round on it earlier this year and it got pretty good feedback.
But still- have you done the nevis red? Better track, better uplift. Oh and check the weather forecast, it’s not too good for sunday!Posted 4 years ago
