Mountainbiking on Beinn Bheigier, Islay

Islay Pictures in stencil

OK, OK, for alpinists the hills on Islay are nowhere near mountains (I think the Paps of Jura might just about qualify for them), nevertheless I think the title ‘Mountainbiking on Islay’ is quite appropriate today. A few days ago I came across a few interesting pictures from someone regular readers might remember:

Almost two years ago, in the Mountain Biking on Islay? entry, I posted two videos MTBLeague posted of mountain biking on Islay. It looks like he's been back recently, as I've found a bunch of Islay and Jura pictures on the MTBLeague Flickr account:

The easiest way to find them is using the islay and jura tags. Looking through them you will find a picture from the summit of Beinn Bheigier with a mountainbike just visible. It's quite strange to see a bike this high up on Islay. Having walked that way a month ago I found it interesting to see pictures of him cycling to the Paps of Jura: At the stepping stones, on the way in and finally at the top of Beinn an Oir (well, I don't think he managed to get the bike all the way up there).

Oh, and there's also a new video, but that's ‘only’ of the Bridgend Woods, not of Beinn Bheigier or the Paps of Jura:
