Since our trip with Steve Peat, Hans Rey and Danny MacAskill last month we have been non-stop mountain biking
Watch your head!
around the West coast of Scotland! Firstly we went in to our Skye and Torridon holiday which we started off at the downhill world cup at Fort William, before heading over to the Isle of Skye for a couple of days riding around a selection of trails that make you feel like your riding in the heart of middle earth!
For the first four days of the holiday at Fort William and Skye we had wall-to-wall sunshine, so expecting the weather to break at some point we headed for the imposing hills of Torridon, but to our surprise the weather held for the remaining three days of riding around the Torridon and Poolewe area, bonus! One of our customers who was on this trip have sent us a link his pictures from the trip.
From this trip we were at HQ for a couple of days before we had another trip back over to Skye where we didn’t expect the weather to be as good as the previous week, but to our surprise Skye was still basking in the sunshine and the trails were bone dry! So another three days of sun and dry trails! This summer is shaping up to be a great one.
At the end of the Skye holiday we were driving home past Torridon, and telling the guests about Torridon, we decided we had time to jump out of the landrover and go for a quick ride. It was a really good ride and we were safe in the knowledge that we would be returning the next day with the guys from Evoc.
Evoc ( http://www.evocsports.com/ ) design some of the best mountain bike bags, bike transport bags and kit bags I have used in years. They made contact with me to help them put together a trip for them in Scotland where they could do some product testing and experience the best trails the country has to offer. So we took them to Laggan wolftrax and then into Torridon for a taster of what Scotland has to offer. You can see a couple of pictures of our trip here.
Now we are packing for a three-day trip in the Cairngorms, pictures and updates as soon as we return!
