Re: Highland Trail 2019

Last three minutes is still at the end of those trees. So annoying for him when he figured out. He will have just missed the gate on the right :???:

I can't think of any reason to be heading up that road. There's no shop or accommodation.

I just think he turned the wrong way :(

...can I ask, is the route the same every year?
I'm no expert mate, but I think it is the same every year unless Alan makes it even longer!
Alan, Allens, Alun, Allans are all awkward, so I wouldn't put it past him... Cheers mate!

tracking for a reason - to show others.
So the other riders that don't know the area as well as him that it may be time to scratch all together ?

once you commit to heading out then there's no escape route so you must either continue to the next glen or turn round,
I cant imagine how that must feel.

Re: Highland Trail 2019

They're doing an Independent Time Trial (ITT), which you can start at any time so they are further round the route at the moment. Only people in Saturday's Group Start get the blue and pink markers. Hope that makes sense! Perfect, thank you :) I did wonder, someone asked me as I was glued to the el...

Yellow markers are those that aren't part of the group start. Those riders all started a few days ago.
Are they out of the race, but riding it anyway? Sorry to ask such a daft question.

I'm happy to be old enough to remember a time when there was no 'grid'. I actually have a degree of sympathy, maybe even pity for those who've only ever known modern communication. :wink: As do I. I spent a glorious 18 years without mobiles or the internet. It was grand. Saying that, I've found thi...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Fitted a new teeny tiny stem, and tried to get rid of all the scratches caused by my crash earlier. Anyone know where you can buy a marker pen that actually comes out black instead of purple? Or some sort of touch up paint? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Touch-up-Paint-for-2018-Ridgeback-Tensor-Bicycle...

You take the small victories and the unexpected in your stride. I definitely think you have to be in just the right mood for silly ideas to be successful. You have to be able to laugh at your daftness, a sense of defiance of reason, and an ownership of your actions. I can already relate to this whe...

Who on this here forum has an idea...an Idea that's really rather silly because it's something that you haven't done before? What if that idea doesn't go away no matter how much you scare yourself with what you want to do? I worry about failing at some ideas I have, but is failing such a bad thing? ...

I seem to collect tyres in different sizes and various states of wear. They're all wire bead so it'll be a ballache to sell them on so they just sit there.

I'm glad I'm not the only one...I've still got loads of 26inch tyres in the loft, with one 26inch pub bike that doesn't even get used!
