Sorry, grumbling again
Yes its transport issues but further even with a reliable car I dont like driving distance. This is not through laziness, i am actually scared as my attention span is poor if tired and i make mistakes which in a car on a busy road could get serious. Early starts mean tiredness before a ride, the physicality of mtb means tiredness after a ride is definite.
When kaiser and I did Strathpuffer Lite my final lap was my last because I crashed because of tiredness and it was on a reasonably flat quite easy section. Went over the handlebars because I misjudged the speed I was going into a bend and couldn't react quick enough to simply pull the brake levers. Head first into boggy ground
Imagine something like that in a car
I think realistically I wont be at a off the cuff last minute ride outwith of a relatively short distance from my home untill I have a reliable car and the SAD has deserted me in the spring.
