Sun, snow, Scotland and… mud: Strathpuffer 2015

post image

  It seems we just can’t help ourselves – it’s January, there are severe weather warnings everywhere and, just like last year, we’re driving up the A9 into a blizzard on our way to the 2015 Strathpuffer.

Orange Five 29 first rides

29ers: They’re not supposed to be good in tight, techy stuff and they’re definitely supposed to be less fun.

A date we’ve been dreading has rolled around – it’s a year today since an Avalanche in Glencoe killed some of the people we loved most in the world. End of mope. Why? Because they spent all their time planning or having adventures with their friends. And we’re grateful. So we made a promise toRead more
