Video: Mountain Biking the Postman’s Path

Mountain Biking: Beautifully shot, and with a story well-told, this video takes us to the remote village of Rhenigidale in Scotland. There, we listen to the stories of Kenny Mackay, the last postman who had to walk a rugged hiking trail — known as the Postman’s Path — to collect the mail for the town. Up until 1990, that trail was the only way in and out of the village.

Interspersed with Kenny’s stories of the old days, we also get several mountain bikers who ride the path, discovering its history and legacy along the way. This is a fantastic short documentary that has been lovingly crafted. Sit back and enjoy, as it is well worth the watch.
