A Dark Ride in the Forest

On Wednesday, we headed down to the Tweed Valley for a chilled day on the bikes. Our friend Neil had just finished his new trail on Tuesday night so it was great timing to be the second people to ride it. The ‘second descent’ doesn’t really mean anything in the biking world like it does for a ‘second ascent’ in climbing, which is weird since it’s the same concept!

I love new fresh trails. Loads of work has gone into it and its safe to say its pretty awesome. So thank you Mr Carnegie!

Below are some photos of us in action. Sadly the light wasn’t great with there being such a low cloud base and no sign of any sun! Its quite a dense forest…we were riding almost blind by the end of the day. Really need to invest in some bike lights!
