Despite the remains of the snow, chris and myself managed to get a ride in down at glentress on monday. With the crispy snow adding resistance the climbing was hard work. Balancing the required torque and the traction meant smooth riding was key. The downhills were ridiculous. At times dips had filled with snow, leaving you hub deep before you could say "oooof!". There's been the addition of some swoop to the lower sections of the red route - nice.
After 2 hours the build up of filth was a sharp reminder of what winter mtb is in scotland...messygoodfun. Yo!
The glentress huts are almost ready by the looks of things. Perhaps another jockstock is brewing?
