Re: Today's Run

Again trying to stretch the distance and control the HR a bit. 15km up at Loch Morlich with a sub-zero start.

1h33m so happy with that. Looking at 21km next week. Fingers crossed.

Re: Scotland 26th April - Bikepacking?

Just confirmed. Travel to and from Scotland and England permitted as of 26th. Whole of Scotland to Tier 3, which allows overnight stays. But please take two Lateral Flow Tests before visiting the islands. First should be 3 days before travel, second on day of travel. If positive, book a test at your...

Re: Whats better than a Hunka but not?

It's a RAB Ascent I use too. In fact I was in it on Friday night. 583g including the midge net. I've briefly looked at others but it's waterproof, breathable, has the midge hood and has proven to be really robust.

Re: If a bike is designed as a 29er, is it just silly thinking to run 27.5 wheels?

Yeah, I don't think you'll fit Plus tyres in that frame. Even if you do, it still lowers the BB a bit (8-10mm). That's one of the reasons I had my Pact built with a relatively small BB Drop, so that running 650x3" would still give me pedal clearance.

Jeez, with yours, Verena's and Reg's excellent trip reports mines looks a trifle sparse. I guess that's mibbe a result of still...

Re: Bivvy a Month 2021

4 for 4. 25km down to a spot in Glen Feshie where we reckoned we'd not have any overnight visitors. It turned out a bit chillier than forecast (-3C) so I had cold toes overnight - I hadn't taken my down socks. I had remembered to lie a water bottle on its side though, so I got water for coffee this ...

Yep. Announcement from Holyrood on 20th should confirm it all. Assuming no local restrictions (like a sudden spike somewhere), travel restrictions across the UK look to be harmonised. https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-timetable-for-easing-restrictions/pages/timetable/ Great new...

I'd disagree with you but it's obvious I've upset you in some way. If I knew what it was, I might offer an apology but since I can't determine the cause, it's a bit hard for me to do so.
