Stepping Stanes to MTB skills

Six intrepid female members of Walkers CC MTB group headed down to Kirroughtree 7stanes on Sunday for a skills session round the popular red route. Against the run of weather of recent days, a beautiful sunny day greeted the group as they arrived at the centre. A quick chat about the plan for the day was had and then it was time to tackle the route.  Seasoned MTBer Julie Nimmo led the group out, pausing at the more technical sections to explain the lines and techniques to ride these sections. With most of the group being relative novices to MTBing, this input proved to be invaluable, and soon confidence was raised to new heights as the ride progressed with the group supporting and cheering each other on. The sweeping downhill section was a fantastic end to a great day as was the mandatory visit to the cafe afterwards!
