Re: Top loop of the HT550 vs Cairngorms Loop? Recommendations which please

Personally if you have 4 days I would do the middle loop of the HT550(starting and finishing in Cannick) missing Loch Stac and the path of a thousand puddles :-) did it a couple of weeks ago and it was running well, the changes are a bit marmite for me but its all riding/pushing. Found lots of shops...

Re: An interesting idea

The Aiguille Alpine bar bag turns into a rucksack It is an interesting idea, although less so having to put one bag in another. My bar bag is usually filthy so all the grit and mud would get inside. Yep I tested the bag and it worked well during winter riding, problem was during the summer I tend n...

Re: HT550 route changes anyone got them so I can update!

Nearly missed the right turn just after the school house bothy for the track to Ullapool not much in it time wise but I preferred the ...

Re: Veneto Trail can anyone help and feel free to tag along!

Rich, doesn’t this make a mockery of your stated reasons for cancelling Jenn Ride? In my eyes not at all!! people need to protect themselves and the people they hold dear to themselves. Italy wants the tourists back as far as I can see and if they let me in I will come. Plan is to ride outside eat ...

I hasten to add my flights were booked months ago but I changed the date from the Tuesday to Saturday seeing that the Jennride is no longer going ahead! I think things will have moved on a lot from what we are currently under. I,ve missed out on the Italy Divide and they are refusing to refund me bu...
