Re: If we close up for a bit...

Actually that seems to be from Scottish Cycling not the Government so not the law and possibly why it's badly worded This is from Scottish Government "Sport, culture and leisure activities: In this phase we are planning to allow unrestricted outdoors exercise adhering to distancing measures and non-...

Re: GBDURO goes from self-supported to self-sufficient

I'll just point out that the position is different in Scotland where the Government is taking a slightly slower approach. A number of cyclists travelling the length of the UK and turning up in some of the local communities will attract the wrong sort of attention. Exactly, I guess we'd need to be i...

Re: If we close up for a bit...

I don’t see anything in the Scottish guidance from 28th requiring a return home at night? So camping ok so long as it’s fairly local and part of your exercise?

Got some lightly used wtb nanos in 700x40c that I'm unlikely to use again. They're non tubeless and I've no idea whether you could set them up tubeless regardless with a bit of perseverance and know how. Any good?
Which ones are they exactly? Are they the folding Race ones?

Re: Hebridean Way

There are ponies up the wee road past Loch Druidibeag on South Uist too. If you are doing the whole archipelago then one transport option is to hire a bike taxi service from Ullapool to Oban (or Ullapool to Inverness to catch a train). This was part of my job for a while... Is that the road to the ...

Re: Hebridean Way

Would like to go over and do this as been to Uists and Eriskay a few times. Will have a look at that Heb shuttle suggestion :) I would say don’t just ride straight off Eriskay. It’s a cool little island. Worth a climb up Beinn Sciathan (Scrien) to find the ponies. They are down around the village in...

Re: Trad Carradice saddle bags (user experience and MYOG related)

Thanks Al, I have some of those here, they're OK but do place the bag closer to the seatpost and the loops can end up at odd angles. Just seems daft that more saddles don't have loops, a nicer solution. There's a moulded nylon base to most of them, why not just add a loop in there? Ah well. I tried...

Currently on an 8 year hiatus though was very tempted to get something this year though this is probably out now .

I’ve got a 2007 forester 2.5 turbo 226bhp I love it , great to drive and much better off road delivering hay to the horses than I thought it would be !

Re: Whats the one event you'll miss, missing out on the most this year?

To be honest I can't really afford to enter events much now* so not missing much!

Have a week in October booked off, should be ok to plan something for then?






*WRT excepted obviously but it's a 550 mile round trip which seems excessive (my car probably struggles to do 30mpg!)
