Mountain Bike

 

Mountain Biking is the untamed cousin of Track and Road Cycling.

It’s a sport that demands it all – combining technique with speed and physical endurance.

Twisting paths, hairpin bends and gnarling roots present the ultimate test of strength and resourcefulness.

The riders play a fearless game of balance, maintaining traction, pitch and control. Who knows when a sudden jump might mean a short unchartered flight?

Chunks of rubber power the riders ever faster as they hurtle downhill. Gears change with a succession of rapid flicks.

The rocky terrain of Cathkin Braes Country Park could be a hotbed of crashes and collisions. Only skill and bravery can propel these riders to the finish line.
