Coire Fee and the Kilbo path

Not been on Trailscotland for a very long time so I thought I might post a cracking but tough ride from Saturday. At last we were promised decent weather for a romp over Mayar and Dreish.  The reality was that it was overcast with a few bright spells with biting winds up on the tops.   However this was ideal for stopping us overheating as the climb up coire Fee is an unrelenting one.  One point of note is that the Kilbo path has eroded badly over the years and what was once a grassy track with ruts and the odd rock has become a deep trench filled with large boulders and loose rocks midway down the open section on the Shank of Drumfollow. This to me is totally unrideable but thankfully further on the rocks give way to peaty, lumpy grass before entering into the conifers. This section is technical but entirely doable. Just watch out for walkers coming up as i had to dive into a gully to avoid walkers on the high line i was riding.

      Aye… Not bad even if I say so myself.
