I might be up for this, The ken.
Though can they check they can transfer the entry as I have been told you cant do it and you also cannot run on somebody elses.
Otherwise I would like it please if all that checks out.
Are you going?
Jamie

Yes that is the issue - you need to pretend to be them, you don't get your own name on the results - id or whole sign is supplied - only way it can be done.

I'm doing it but have had a few friends that have dropped out.

Dammit to hell, I was fiendishly trying to concoct a way to get on this Glen Lyon trip too.

I did this exact route about 7 years ago on my Saracen, and the col was fairly brutal even in the granny gear. I can only barely visualise it on a road bike before images of Gazz's knees exploding crowd my fragile eggshell mind.

Fortingall is nice too, apparently home to Europe's oldest sheep, dating from the time of Pontius Pilate. I did the classic 'glide to a stop whilst forgetting I was clipped in' there, just before I did the classic 'splat sideways onto the tarmac'.

The South Loch Tay road surface was pants then though.

Aahhhh, oldest YEW... :-)

Funny you should mention it, about halfway down the glen (Glen Lyon) I almost had a header with a BMW which I met on a corner.
