Howdy. I read your pieces on some international trails..well i have ridden in a fair few places over the years and there are a few that stick out in my mind. I started mountain biking in Glen of the Downs (Wicklow, Ireland for those not familiar) many many years ago and once I got hooked I travelled all over the country racing and riding in different counties. Due to study commitments I moved onto the trails in Scotland, near and around Glasgow, including the west highland way and up into Fort William...the trails there are just like here in Ireland, except the scenery is on a larger scale, but all the same colours and landscapes, and now their purpose build trails are helping the landscape hold up to more trashing, but these are manicured trails where as I come from a more natural mtb background, so i much prefer riding straight up or down or across a mountain.
