Can you post up a route K.In fact it would be a good thing to have a section on ridden routes. 8)


Its hard to post the route, the pdf from the site is much easier .

Kaiser, your fitness is starting to make me sick, 2 laps and the second one even faster :shock:

Dalbeatties to far for me for a day ride and not my old retrobike friendly. Mind you my perception of it is biased by the fact we rode it in the torrential pissing rain and as is well catalogued I crashed badly 3 times :roll:

If there is a next time for me its iDrive time :wink:

Blooming smart photies though 8)


Its is a different kettle'o'fish in the dry V. And the full sus should make the obstacles a bit easier but probably slow you down on the fire road sections.

Racing Ralph / Kenda Karma L3R. Probably not the fastest combo, but I don't just want a pair of tyres purely for racing - Hopefully get plenty of grip from the Kenda, and I went for 2.2s rather than 2.0s, so will do duty as summer trail center tyres.

Cool, not familiar with the Karma's but the RR sounds promising. I may have cured my puncture dilema, conti recommends a inflation pressure of 50psi :o

Naw :oops: at a pinch I'd maybe have done the slab but the qualifier is a bridge too far.

Keep your eye on the midweek moontains thread for when your home or even post up if your heading out sometime :)
