Re: Highland Trail 2015

I‘ll be driving from Keswick via Carlisle and may have space in the van if anyone‘s sruggling for transport. Probably 10am Keswick, 11ish Carlisle on the Friday. May be doing an airport collect. Get in touch if interested. May be a long wait for a lift back though............

Re: Tubeless 29er Tyres - Any Recommendations

Any of the Specialized tyres seal well and are good value. Sidewall/carcass varies from light/puny through to heavier/sturdy in the order: S-Works - Control - Grid
I've found Racing Ralphs good to, for a hardpack tyre which can hold it's own in some slop.

Re: HT550 Northern Loop - The Video

Thread resurrection......

Nice little video and useful to watch - really looking forward to (most of) it in May.
Watching it, I recognise you both from Man O' Porage events.
