Good stuff :) hopefully some more of the gravity guys will join in. I had considered doing both, but I'm no sure.

Is that possible? If I could get enough fuel into me I'd maybe do both as well :?

Depends what you want to acheive from each one I guess. You could be a ringer in a team Rob and keep yer powder dry for the enduro or go out for it at 10UTB and enjoy the next days riding. Last time Rado and I did 10UTB I was fairly fresh the next day, maybe a bit stiff but I think I would have shaken it off if I needed to ride.

Was thinking about a jaunt to Skye in April.

Sorta finish work on Thursday drive to Skye, ride Friday & Saturday on Skye perhaps

Idrigill loop
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 9&start=15
http://www.offroadadventures-online.com/rr051.html

although needs to dry spell, hence why I'm thinking of April

also thinking about the doing a few in and outs into the Cuillin coires from Glen Brittle... these are all climbs in and decents out

Then the Kintail Loop or another route on the drive home on Sunday.

free accommodation may be provided if there's any interest

All sounds good to me :) I can't make the national either :( My new work pattern means even though I have more weekends off its harder to get off on the ones that I'm working, moreso than ever I'm at the mercy of my rota. Added to that I'm already struggling for weekend passes, I've already got a couple of things on the cards.

BTW I'm making some preliminary investigations into the Munro bagging by bike. I've got Ben Lawers, Ben Lomond and Ben Vorlich on the agenda. These will more than likely(possibly) be done mid week though to avoid walkers. Still a good few months away and I'll probably start a thread nearer the time but it'd be good to hear if theres any interest.

Been on my to do list for a few years but never find any company at the right time. Mid week usually suits me as well, as long as its not school holidays. Mount Keen is also an easy half day ride. Driesh and Mayer are a bit of a hike a bike, but a 2for1 day out. Could feasibly fit all three into a day with a bit of driving in between. And thighs of steel.
