    Default King of the mountain.

    I got out for a spin on Sunday on my local trails . For me this is Massys ,cruagh wood, tribraddan and the back of fairy castle. We all have our special trails we know and love , with a certain time of the year when these trails are mint and you'll be at your best . So I am setting my own challenge but would love to hear your feedback in the form of Dabs . Here's what I mean . A climbing challenge! Climbing from the the wood gate at the bottom of Bone Shaker in the direction of king Niall grave down the sleepers along California and up the woka wokkas to the far face of fairy castle ( endowing the right hand sleeper ) with out a Dab . Now I know Bon is excellent on bone shaker and Alfie is brilliant on wokkas, Mick on the fairy castle climb . But who can put the climb it all together and record your dabs honesty for yourself and the craic. I myself am going to pick a day even try my hardtail and my trail bike and post up my results no matter how bad good or uninterested you are! Feedback welcome. Oh yeah and there is a prize in the form of two large pizzas and drinks from the nice place in stepaside . Good luck .

    Nice one Roo. Start of that climb is a tough one.

    Pretty sure you're talking about the "incredibly rocky descent" up to the Tibradden Cairn. Bone Shaker is on the other side of the mountain.

    Yes yes I am talking about the incredibly rocky descent. The aim of the game is the lowest number of dabs to win the king of the mountain within 6 months . Just so everyone can get a chance to do it .

    Do you have to count each step as a dab when hiking the bike up there??
