Now in it’s 4th year, Stu Thomson’s Aberfoyle Festive Slip ‘n Slide went down yesterday with almost 50 riders battling the mud and ruts wheel-to-wheel.
Nothing quite says Christmas like chasing each other down some steep, rutted madness. Stu Thomson yet again organised a big ride out between Christmas and New Year, seeing almost fifty riders skitter their way down the trails Aberfoyle is now famous for.
Both Pete and Chris were on hand to document the carnage.
December 29th saw a bunch of very keen riders descend on Aberfoyle from all across Scotland to hassle each other down trails that are difficult enough on your own. Add the collective churning ability of a hundred tyres and some trail congestion, and you have a recipe for some serious good times!
Big thanks to Phil and the staff at The Forth Inn for looking after 50-odd muddy riders, and providing some top notch food post-ride.
Did you get together for a festive ride with a bunch of mates? There’s still time if not. Show us your pictures if you did!
