Still referred to as Delorme on the trackleaders page but should work.

Robbie - are you in Fife? or is that a different Robbie that was in for an ITT back in 2015? If you are in Fife you can borrow my spot for the HT for a beer or two if you aren't I'd be happy to offer mine for a lend in any case

My Gen 3 is available foc to whoever wants it. It doesn't have a subscription at the moment.

If I get my arse into gear and do some ITTs this year I will take out a subscription. PM me if you want to book it.

If you do hire one get it booked soon as lots of schools hire them for DoE trips over whitsun.

Thanks Phil. I’m slightly disappointed though as I thought this sort of ride would be right up your street!

Spot wanted to hire/borrow with basic tracking for Borders 220. Event starts Sat 7 July so I'll need it a few days before, probably a week altogether. Thanks in advance.
