Mourne's Seven Sevens, Single Speed

OK, we carried the bikes most of the time, but so what?! A great day out on 19 May. Parked at Carrick Little (south of Binnian), took the road round to the Ott Track, then did the 7 peaks over 700 metres. Not one for lovers of flowing singletrack, it is very technical, with lots of carrying.

View the slideshow.

SUPERB (albeit technical) descents from Meelbeg, Bearnagh, Commedagh, Donard and Binnian. Some great stuff also on the Brandy Pad, and from Donard under the Castles, and between the Tors going up Binnian. Terrible bike descents from Meelmore and most of Lamagan - pretty much unrideable unless well scouted first. A long day, but well worth the effort.

Nice to see you included the three pictures of riders on bikes rather than the 143 pictures of bikes on riders!
