LETS GO DOWN THE KILPATRICK HILLS ON A BIKE, FAST!
If you have never seen someone go down a hill a great speeds on a mountain bike you must watch this video. I didn’t even know that this happened up the hills. I’ve been up there a number of times and I’ve only ever seen walkers. Not only does this take a lot of skills it takes rock hard bravery too.
I used to race mountain bikes as a teenager and I know how easy it is to come off a bike at high speed. I’ve seen make sore ones but luckily never done anything too serious – although I was up the other side of the Kilpatrick hills at Overtoun house one night about 12 years ago and my cousin fell off and broke his collarbone.
Amazing to know such sport or crazy biking as some would call it is taking place right up behind us. Just another reason to why Old Kilpatrick is placed in such an excellent location.
