Laggan Wolftrax, 11 Mar'09

Went to bike down the Red routes at Laggan Wolftrax today, expecting a similar experience to the red routes at Glentress. Well, no - much tougher ! Slabs, boulder-ways with drop-offs and a 240m long raised wooden "Wolf Run", this was a joy. I was a bit put off to start of with, high level of concentrating was initially needed, but soon I got into the swing of it and started belting down hill. The "Wolf Run" doesn't have any chicken-mesh on it and I chickened out on the corners - the wood being slippy in bits. After the red, it was back uphill for a couple of stints down the orange with its tight swooping corners and jumps.
