This issue’s cover is by James Vincent. Hike-a-bike on the front cover… part of a big adventure, or a reminder you don’t need that mountain biking can be hard?
Camera: DJI Mini 3 Pro
Settings: 1/3200 sec, f1.7, ISO100, 6.7mm (35mm equivalent = 24mm)
‘Rider’: Luke Ellis Bradley
Location: South Glen Shiel Ridge
The South Glen Shiel Ridge is an impressive row of seven Munros that stretches for over 5 miles and dominates the skyline to the south of Glen Shiel in the Scottish Highlands. You might have noticed it if you’ve ever driven to Skye towards Shiel Bridge… Or maybe not if the weather was particularly Scottish. Relatively early into the traverse of the ridge, just after the descent off Creag Mhàim, the trail narrows and forms an exposed rocky spine, barely inches wide. Like much of the ridge it proved impossible to ride, and if we wanted to move forwards there was no option but to shoulder our bikes.
This Glen Shiel adventure will be in a future issue of Singletrack World. Stay tuned!
