Doesn't that already exist north of the border. Their frocks have a nice little checked pattern on them
Stu: But even the role models started somewhere then realised that, actually, they were quite good at whatever and had the drive to improve themselves. They only got noticed when they had improved to the point that they were newsworthy. Maybe something along the lines of this piece - http://fatbiking.eu/?p=8483

Just because they are not saying it doesn't mean they aren't thinking it! I know I carry out a mental risk assessment every single time we wild camp and also when we stay in bothies for example too. That's just how it is. I do agree it isn't the only issue though.
I'm not trying to suggest there isn't a problem, but don't we all do that?
Of course. But attempting to equate men's and women's experiences in this regard really does women a grave disservice. Men don't know what it is like to grow up female. Conversations like this one and '#me too' goes some way to address that but you can't possibly understand it fully, no more than I can understand what it is like to grow up black or asian for example. As '#me too' has shown, women have to be on their guard constantly to try to make sure they don't find themselves in vulnerable situations. It goes on at a subconscious level most of the time. I really don't think that is the same with men. I just don't think that is going through a man's head when he finds himself alone in a room with another man for example.
This is OT as well, but what the hell I'm feeling rebellious: what tartan is that Stu? That's a marvellous photo on so many levels. I mean, it's not everyone who gets invited to a Palace garden party is it? "Services To Bikepacking"?

It was my doing. After getting 'permission' I'm hoping this will inspire/encourage more people to do what we love/hate doing around the globe and a little website name drop got in there too

It was, of course, still attached to the bars via a lanyard....
