After the mountain biking I had done at Glentress last month, I thought that the forestry track along the side of the CVR, shouldn’t be a problem. It turns out that I had more confidence than skill.
Racing ahead of Allistair and Alison, I followed Rhona downhill, faster than I should have and hit a rock. As my bike stopped, I flew over the handlebars. Even with my elbow and knee pads on, I still took quite a battering, leaving bumps, bruises, and a wee hole in my hand. Lesson learned!
