Labour Weekend Shuttles Up Ben Nevis!

Postby derekwinwood on Thu 16/Oct/08 8:36pm

Hey all,
Organising a day of DH shuttles up Ben Nevis tracks, next Sunday the 26th of October. Going to be a great chance for all those who haven't ridden up there to check it out and get shown down the best two tracks in the area, by a dedicated group of locals that dig and ride out there often. With the last round of the top of the pops races being held out there it will be a dry run for a truck up the road and turn around times. Going to have a bbq too, so bring some meat to chuck on and some tasty beverages..oh and 10 or so bucks for the vehicle hire. 2wd vehicles can cruise up to the first skid site to park.

Be good to know numbers for truck hire so leave a comment ah. :)

Hey Derek - sounds like a good day (rain or not). I'll check back on here to see when the shuttle is getting planned for, throw on some flats and some big ass tyres and I'm there. If your out over this weekend for a raz I'd be up for a spin. Dragged my ass up Fireball to do Turners on Tuesday and it was pretty much gone - or the top section anyway.
