Rich Rothwell: Cairngorms Loop In One Day

Authored By Kris Payne

Rich Rothwell recently did the Cairngorms loop in one day, a pretty amazing ride, it would be great if one day Rich maybe put this on as an organised ride, I’m sure it would be well received! Here’s his story... We are really lucky in the north to have so many amazing and easily accessible riding locations literally on our doorstep. The Cheviots, Lake District, Pennines, or Yorkshire, road or off road, there are rides to suit all interests and abilities. Perhaps my favourite place to ride a bike though, has to be the Scottish Highlands. Some of the big...

A win for Rich at the osprey 12, congratulations Richard, here’s his take on it... Last weekend saw the inaugural High Fell Events Osprey 12; a twelve hour mountain bike race which used most of the excellent blue graded trail at Kielder Forest. The blue trail grading disguises what is arguably the best downhill singletrack in the whole of Kielder forest and the relatively short lap was an absolute blast to ride! I didn’t fancy it solo; since racing in Colorado I took some recovery and training down time and was really at the Osprey 12 for a bit of...
