Ride The Highlands

A cool day yesterday with Graeme McLean from Developing Mountain Biking In Scotland and the awesome Lee Craigie.  Lee is the British and Scottish X Country MTB Champion, and she’s landed what she’s described as her “dream job”...  two weeks in a Big Tree Campervan, dashing around the Highlands and riding some of the best MTB trails and trail centres.

The idea is that, supported by us and DMBinS, Lee will ride these highland trails and capture the adventures on GoPro film footage and GPS records. DMBinS will then pull the whole thing together into an E-Guide of the top MTB trails in Highland Scotland.  Lee is being joined by various pals over the next two weeks, and will ride some easy stuff like the Glencoe Lochan track and the Bealach Brittle Loop on Skye... all the way through to epic adventures like the Corriyarick Pass in Laggan and the Torridon Coulags.  Lee did ask if we wanted to join her for some rides... we may say yes if it’s one of the (very) easy days!
It should all be great fun, and we’re delighted that we’re able to work with great organisations like Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland, who are doing so much to promote this fantastic sport, and of course work with awesome athletes like Lee.
