Busy weekend.......

Cracking weather for filming.
The whole team at Rock and Ride were very busy this weekend.  Ian headed over to Scotland for 3 days of intense mountain biking (he has a blog just about finished) and Ronnie and myself worked with  RTE again on Saturday and with two climbing groups on Sunday.

Roping the cameraman and botanist into place.

After the first day with RTE in July not going to plan (the Irish summer of rain, wind and general damp meant they didn't get the shots they wanted), we tried again on Saturday and luckily it went well! Both Ronnie and myself had a cracking day roping Barry the cameraman into place, looking after Colin the botanist and generally enjoying chill out on the edge of Ben Bulben, Sligo!

On Sunday we then had 2 groups out in the Mournes for a great day, looking at climbing skills such as building belays, placing anchors and some movement skills on real rock.  It was great to be out enjoying the last of the summers sunshine with a really nice bunch of people who were psyched for a taster of climbing!

Looking the part!

A big thanks to Stevie at the Adventure Team for passing on our details!
