Re: Vittoria Terreno G2.0 MTB Tyre

Re: New tent dilemma

Thanks for all the advice , although now I'm even more confused :roll: it seems one mans best tent is another's worst nightmare . Going to stick to the Tarp for one nighters but for multiday rides I'm getting to old for too many nights under a tarp so I'll have hedge my bets and choose , no rush I'm...

Re: LEJOG ( off road of cause )

Yes any help is great . The route I had planned was down the road to the distillery at Lynwilg up the track through An Gleannan to Cagan . Down to join the cycle track following the A9 at Slochd , off at Loch Moy then over General Wades road into the back of Inverness .

Unfortunately my first DNF , Garmin problems in Barmouth followed by a permanent failure of my head torch left me doing the next section of single track on my 1 candle power emergency light .
