Macretro's Herbal Essences 'Rainforest Flowers' Photoshoot earlier today...
mikee's trails still do not cease to amaze, from the tropical overhang pictured above and the short but sweet Falkland foresty bit, complete with blind 90 degree tunnel. After meeting up with TK, we climbed up to the radio mast and did the sweet singletrack back down into Glenrothes - quite a bit different from last year though, very sketchy under tyre but still huge fun. Enjoyed 'hairy fanny' forest (or whatever it was called), superb sloping forest trails, rooty and obviously very slippy in the wet. Wasn't so keen on being slapped in the face by the oak saplings though, nor the head height nettles and the ninja molehills throwing me off, and as usual the urban trails that are actually in Glenrothes were superb.
Weather wise, we were lucky for most of the day, only one real torrential downpour near the end of the ride. After escorting Velo to the road for the train, we were denied at the pub for health and safety reasons (could they smell TKs damp feet?). So back to mikee's to get dry and enjoy some fine fish suppers (much appreciated).
Top day out. Honestly, the variety of trails up there is staggering... Proper steep hilly descents, lovely singletrack and techy woods - Scotland's best kept mountain biking secret, I swear.
