Re: WhereYouAre Ride Thing 2020

Tandem towing family WRT. We started by creating our own grid refs, (GR) using a lottery of easting and northing from a selection of tandem friendly GR numbers. Mummy picked a easting and Jacob a northing from a list I made and we plotted 4 points then Jacob picked the best route to bag them all. ht...

WRT grid refs planning

Hey all, How is every one plotting the route this year? Last year I stuck the refs on physical map and pinned together a route then did a gpx on the computer, it was a enjoyable experience but needed dedicated time.. I wouldn't mind a app or software this year that I could type the refs in for a ove...

Re: Fatfighters 2018 Weigh-in Thread

Re: Scotland SE Winter Bivi Dec 10/11.

ok so back to the original plan! I was quite taken by the Cramond Island camp, oh well. Right, as Blair will confirm I am extremely slow at climbing so on the day if we are staying as a group we will need to adjust riding times. Alternatively I have mapped the route I assume we are taking and can ca...

Right then, sorry to say but Fingland and the other BBA Bothies are all booked for that week end. We can stick with the original plan and use Over Pawhope and hope it's not heaving and take bivi gear in case it is or, use Bunnies Bothy and take a different route from last year (every chance we will...

Just got herpes stu! Went for the fatboy after a test ride this morning, and I am sure the Sonders fat would have been just as good but the rack mounts was a must really.

Re: Joining the fat bike club this week.

Not that weight is a big deal really, I don't notice that the Moonlander is heavier than the fattie, it just...
