Skye.

19 07 2014

A while ago now, I had a few days riding on the Isle of Skye and in Torridon. This instalment will show some of the trails I rode on Skye. Despite the weather being kind enough, some of the trails were very wet, even under water, but you take what you get on Skye: the weather is often as challenging as the terrain on the Inner Hebrides.

As boggy as the initial part of the 50km loop on Skye was, the views of the Cuillin ridge and the superb trail higher up in the mountains, more than made up for it.

Goosebumps.

The descent down to Sligachan, mild in gradient, was one of the better trails I have had the pleasure of riding.

Next up, Torridon.
