Go Mountain Bike at Flowerdale, Gairloch.

Working on front wheel lifts

Three budding mountain bikers joined myself and John for a morning at Flowerdale, Gairloch.  We had a busy time covering almost 10 miles on the network of superb trails here.  As well as riding up and down hill the youngsters also looked at biking skills such as front wheel lifts, rear wheel lifts and different ways of braking.  By the end of the session everyone was biking with more confidence and managed to successful get over obstacles that had caused problems in the morning.

Over the last year or so Andrew Johnston at Gairloch High School has shown me some of the best routes here at Flowerdale – many thanks!

There are still spaces for the Highland Council Summer Programme biking and climbing in two weeks time.  Please telephone Gairloch Leisure Centre on 01445 712345 and ask for details.
