The Burma Road
With the weather being so changeable mountain biking has been a good option recently, as it's possible to feel like you've had a good day out with lots of exercise in a half-day weather window! I went to do one of the classics of Cairngorm mountain biking---The Burma Road. This route, apparently named after it's Second World War namesake, starts with a bruising sustained climb that truly tests what's in your legs! After the pain there is a long, fast rocky descent to drop to the beautiful River Dulnain, with its Caledonian pines. Undulating twin-track leads via a couple of fabulous General Wade bridges, eventually bringing you into Carrbridge. Supposed to be picking up and be more summery later this week. Here's hoping for a warmer June!
