The annual running of the bears. Or at least the annual trudging of the UK bike-packing community somewhere around Mid-Wales. As normal, I have a cold, but this time I am at least going to the start and worst case I’ll take some photos and heckle for the first few kilometres. Who knows. Either way, I should be starting at some point around 8:30am – aim, if I ride, is to get round in a single push. I have done little to no research. I’m sure it will be fine.
- Tracking for me is here on my SPOT page: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0F9Si75bOHu1UysYQsZyjrCHLOn6GBpu0
- Apparently some of us will also show up here as a mini group: http://www.wherearethepilots.com/php/ShowPilots.php?CC=hich&ShowAll
I’ll be on my Tour Divide bike, the trusty Salsa Cutthroat – I’ve not rode this since I finished in Antelope Wells back in July. Kit is…svelte for the ride. Stopping would possibly be the sillier option.
