Scotland Mountain Biking - wild trails, 10 Jan. 2010
I've found the Vertebrate series of mounatin bike guide books very useful and easy to use.
Two reasons: 1) using OS maps is a big plus, it's easy to see where you are, what the climb is and what the terrain is like.
2) the descriptions are easy to follow, with enough information so you don't get lost.
I was really pleased when they published this book - the wild trails as before l had relied on magazine articles and planning my own routes from OS maps. This guide has given me confidence to go out and ride the wilder trails of Scotland.
Glen Sligachan - Isle of Skye - l rode this but in the other direction (either way - its amazing). Fantastic scenery, very remote and technical. A good day out which starts and finishes at a pub - always a bonus.
West Highland Way - Fort William - l rode a quarter of this to Kinlochleven. The trail from Fort William follows some exciting singletrack through the forest, and then picks up an old bridleway which winds through remote valleys to Kinlochleven. Really enjoyable riding.Keen to ride the rest of the route.
