    Arrow

    would love to come on this trip - but probably have to be next year -
    1. Because will probably be in the Brecon Beacons this year
    and
    2. Although pleased to see you are doing a summer run this time - the dates are just a bit tight for me - have to be back at work by end of school holidays - so this year that would be 2nd Sept

    so any chance you are doing it again next year - in the summer - could maybe tweek the end date just a bit - just for me - who might not even come - Guess not then?

    Yes Stu, but I did throw 50k air miles at it, hence the price.

    When you lot did the first half, was someone using a Rotopax fuel container?

    http://www.rotopax.com/Gasoline/

    Any feedback on it?
    I have 100 mile tops (plus 20 in reserve) so could do with carrying more.

    White Rim Trail

    Mike/Gaz/Bilco - is this on the TAT route?
    http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/whiterim.htm

    The pics near the bottom on here suggest it might be.

    http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/whiterim.htm

    Certainly worth doing on the day off if not.
