A bike any use for Beinn Mholach?

I am thinking of going up Beinn Mholach from the A9, and wondered if a mountain bike was any use to get nearer the hill? it looks like there is some decent track at least at first - does it go on for far enough and would you have to lift the bikes over any big fences?

- Where main (double line) path on map ends but you can still see it continuing on.
- Continuation of the track heading West up the Allt Shallainn
Hope these are of some use.

walked in from dalnaspindal in 2hrs, set up base camp by Duinish Bothy
climbed corbett in less than 3 hrs from base camp and graham in less than 2 hrs.
overnight in tent,woke up afterwards as a 50 yr old, and walked out in less thn 2hrs.
Ballinluig motorgrill for my birthday lunch.
walk in on west side is on a superb track for most of its length, about 1.5hrs walking time - bike would be a doddle to here, last 30mins was wet/boggy until got to bridge/hydro building.
Great area and worth savouring, the views East from Graham Creag a' Mhadaidh over Loch errochty were superb

As folk have mentioned, there is a gap of about a mile between the constructed paths along Loch Garry and those that extend beyond the hydro install on the Allt Shallainn. Even after a dry spell this gap on vague paths was barely cycleable so unless planning to make a lot of use of the better paths on the Mholach side I would be tempted to leave the bike at the end of Loch Garry on a day trip.
