Chronicles of Gnarnia: MountainBikeNI showcases Northern Ireland’s best trails

The fictional realm depicted in CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia were likely inspired by the forests and highlands of Northern Ireland. And after watching the guys from MountainBikeNI shred the foggy, rock-armored trails of Rostrevor, Castlewellan and Davagh Forest it’s easy to see why.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
