would you go back?


Yes, definately. Its a really good test circuit, both technical and physical. It'd be interesting to go back after a summers riding to see how you'd come along.

Definitely want to go back, less mincing, session some of the trickier stuff, and swap my SPDs for flats just for more confidence on McMoab! :)

Do it on a bike I'm a bit more comfortable on too. Would think about maybe making a weekend of it, camping out and getting Dalbeattie and Mabie done at the same time. Forget about the ride, it was the 5 hours in the car that took it out of me :oops:

Hi guys, thought i'd join up (It's Stuart by the way).
Just thought I would thank you guys for a good ride on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the banter was also top notch.

I'd go back in summer but as part of a camping trip, too far in just one day.

Will need to bite the bullet and buy one modern trail bike, most of my kit would fail horribly at K'tree
