I cannot export as GPS but they should be able to. Then you can place it over OS maps, say on Bing.

Very happy with the rear stx mech, the hope seat clamp is too small so I have told the wife the only option is to buy another bike, that the seat clamp will fit :D :D

pleased the trip was worth it mate, a mix of old and new is something i will build on for future rides. that final tarmac climb in reverse would be a good start :wink: no more said for now :wink:

Last years' planning was real easy at the side of this years', by trying to remove boggy spots yet keep good flow. The wooded trail that i wanted to use to by-pass that nasty muddy bend(with the planks) was even worse than that bend with the planks! unthinkable, truly. on a recce i got stuck and walked out of the woods and, a nice fast drop back to the house was omitted due to deep mud. may be worth putting the whole venture back a few weeks or a month if the current weather trend is going to continue.

cheers.
