Mountainbiking hills (5 forest challenge) 3:09:00  39.65 km (4:46 / km) +975m 4:15 / km
Rode Jacks MTB back from the Slieve Donard hotel
(annual christmas family gathering)
Added a bit of interest to the ride by bagging some MTB in 5 forests en route.
started off in Donard then cut across the open hill to Tollymore crossed the Hilltown rd and upto Moneyscalp made my way down to Castlewellan forest before the slog up Croob direction and Drumkeragh.
Roads were seriously slippery after Castlewellan - hard packed snow and ice. got dark after Castlewellan too.
nice ride with some big hills
