A long way to Largs and back

At Largs Marina

Originally today I thought I might get dropped off down at Girvan and cycle back with wind assistance but the wind had other ideas so I dropped the thought in favour of a local bit of mountain biking. A long hilly figure of eight, first around the pretty Hunterston Peninsula passing Portencross castle and the three sisters (crags), doubling back to climb Biglees quarry, a steep rough track with great views, a little bit of lovely singletrack to Fairlie, a huge climb up through Kelburn to Douglas Park View point above Largs, then the Douglas Park downhill (I took the chicken run around the jumps).
There was a young lad just at the steep drop in the park, I hope he forgives my language as I dropped through, a sort of hello....oh! f**k!.
Down at the marina it looked like one of the yacht owners was paying a flying visit, the helicopter was sitting beside the shore, I wonder if he/she goes mountain biking. The helicopter would certainly be handy to get to the best downhills.

Some Kelburn pictures here.

Today's video here.

Now there is a good idea, a helicopter ride to the top of the trails, and then down on the bike
