A Boost up Ballinastoe-Schools Completion Mountain Biking

Today we had our last Schools Completion Mountain Biking activity. We traveled to Ballinastoe again with a group for beginners and intermediate shredders.

The beginners learned new trails skills with Leo from Biking.ie and Ms. Scanlon encouraged all the group to find 'flow' on the trails.

The intermediate riders went with Mr. Doran and Mr. Devine to explore some new trails- Zipper, Pump and Grind and the Expressway. All of these trails are located at the top of the trail centre. Today we had an opportunity to try e-bikes.

These full suspension enduro bikes have eco, trail and boost modes and we shared the bikes up the long climb to experience a very different ride.

These bikes are 'addictive' and although we were out from 3.30 to closing time at 5.00 we were definitely ready for another lap of the trails.

Leon had a chance to wear his new 661 Reset Helmet that he was awarded for his enthusiasm this year for outdoor education. He was awarded the overall 'Man of the Mountain 2019.' (This is our version of Man of the Match.)

A Big Thank You to Leo our trail guide from Biking.ie for his guidance and encouragement on the trails.
