Ballinastoe Super Stokage-All the leaves were green and the sky was blue...

We could have re-written 'California Dreaming' on our last two days out in Ballinastoe. There is something special about being among the ever-green tress in the Wicklow Mountains in the Winter sun.

We travelled to Balinastoe for two mountain trail skills workshops with the L.A.B project and Biking.ie recently. Leo as usual motivated us to get going in the cold and after some warms up at the cabin we headed for the trails on the lower half of the trail centre. Myles was the man to beat up to the junction when we stopped to find fast and flowly trails back to the cabin. Even the ice and sub-zero temperatures on the second day didn't deter us from having lots of fun. We even rode the last trail three times the 'stokage' was that high.

We had a small group on each workshop so we didn't pick a Man of the Mountain. All the lads were super shredders and their confidence and ability levels really increased over the two afternoons.

On behalf of the group-A big thank to Lisa, Myles and Carl from the L.A.B project and to Leo from Biking.ie.

Is Cian the Bear Grylls of Ballybrack? He can cook some great bush tucker! You wouldn't get a burger like this in Box Burger!
