I then missed a section due to not realising the impact with the tree knocked the battery's out of the camera.

Just watched through those, great videos!

Glentress looks fun to ride. If you don't mind me asking a question, what happens when you get down the bottom? I noticed most of the trails head downwards (phew, not many climbs...) but how do you get back up top again if you want to ride again?

Sorry if its a bit of a 'newbie' question, just not sure how it works.

PS: The trees are REALLY close together at some parts, I'd be worried about crashing...

Ride back up heh, these are loops like at most trail centres but normally the climbs are fire road so a bit boring but easier or some technical ones which become fun due to the rocks etc, now to watch the videos.

If you want downhills with no climbing back up you need to go to the Alps with chair lifts Smile

ah forgot my isp doesnt like pinkbike or my 3 work ones, watched some of the first video after letting it load 20 secs, looks nice at least, now if only teleporters existed so we could get to these places in a minute or two instead of many hours driving Sad

Just had a chance to watch some of these - work internet doesn't like pinkbike and home internet is super slow.

Great vids Russ, you got a lot of good footage there.  Would say thanks for lugging the camera round, but you didn't thank me for carrying the spare tyre on the SDW so we're even Wink

Cheers for the effort editing the vids though  8)

Great vids Russ, thanks for going to all the effort of lugging the cam around and spending ages to edit them etc...  Joking asside you know we appreciate you doing them, need to get more of my fat ass in next time though Wink  I want to go back and do it all again after watching them. The vid makes "the Bitch" look like a complete piece of p!ss though. For those that weren't there it was bloody steep and very loose and i needed a change of underwear at the bottom the first time as i was sliding all over the place.

Just been watching these as cant ride and no tv signal. It looks fun and I need to go there! What happened on the Boundary trail though, did the front wheel slip on corner entry or did you jus clip the camera slightly? Looks really dramatic with it just cutting out heh

Looks bloody awesome infact, the biatch trail looks quite extreme! Some of them look smoother which is better for me. I want to do Whites again (OT!) as I found it too rocky and bumpy but then I had no brakes and couldnt see due to fogged glasses from the rain so line choice was probably as bad as possible!

I hit a tree with my right shoulder (i have a scar to prove it!) which knocked me right down fast, it stopped suddenly as the force of me hitting the tree knocked the batterys out of the camera.
