A couple of years ago we had our first blast around one of the Witches Trails at Nevis Range.
When we returned the following year - the trail had gone! I thought I was cracking up.
However at last night's presentation (see below) when I mentioned I'd spent yesterday afternoon on the Witches Trails, someone remarked - "Oh you found the trails did you?"
Clearly others had found them somewhat tricky to locate.
The World Championship red trail, built for the 2007 championships, is a stunner. I was hugely delighted to get around the whole thing (well, excluding the Black option) with only five foot-downs.
I was going on quite a bit about it last night and tweeted about it too.
But it's years since I mountain biked seriously, and I've been working up to this.
Trail conditions were just right - not too wet to be sludgy, nor too dry to turn to loose dust.
However, I am going to have to learn how to ride drop-offs. Anything more than half wheel height and I just bottle it.
I might even take some tuition.
Imagine the call, "Hello. Can you teach an old dog new tricks?" Hey, if I can't find someone in Fort William to teach me, I'm not much of a journalist.
The 10 Under The Ben red trail was next. It's longer but a much easier option compared to the World Champs run.
There's one gnarly red downhill section, called "The Cackle" which I initially bottled, then went back and breezed.
However, I completely bottled Black Nessie, the big sting int he tail of this ride.
When I got around and down to the bottom of that section, and saw all the permanent padding and scramble netting slung around the trees, I decided discretion had been the better part of valour.
I heal slower these days.
