If I make it to this one (more than likely) has anyone got transport problems????? I drive a saloon could pick up a body or two on the way.

Usually ZZ transports me but my bikes due to my large size are a wee bit heavy and I'm always worried that his boot mounted rack is going to rip the boot lid off, it already moves a bit more than is comfortable :?

As an alternate transporter I'd be interested in your offer. I sometimes transport my bike strapped to the back of my 250 scooter but its not fun in winter so lifts are always good :D

This is now a no go for me, not been a good DIY weekend and finishing by next weekend seems impossible.

I was there the other day. conditions are great considering. It actually didnae seem that slippy or rooty. One section to look out for is after the twisty trees bit which brings you out at a pond, you head down the fireroad. When you cut back into the trail its a very fast section, one area right at the start has been slightly washed away and its a wee bit precarious. Other than that business as usual.Last year Gazz and I completed the red with the black end and then went back and done the black start. This worked quite well, if you don't fancy it stay at the carpark if you do your warmed up and trail ready enough to do it. Nothing is impossible retro but you might mince a few bits, good to have a wee sessioning bit on some of the obsatcles. Reckon the black start takes 30 mins or so but its worth it. Either that or do the lot.
