Tom and I have recovered from the Xmas lurgy. Our bags are packed, and the bikes are ready for Strathpuffer. We are both really looking forward to it.
We have been fortunate to gain some sponsorship for this year.
Alpkit have sent us an Alpkit Possum frame bag which arrived today. I'll use this at the weekend to carry our spare tubes, pump etc, and some jelly babies, so there is no need to ride with a rucksack.
We have also been given some lights by Exposure. The Toro Mk6 along with a piggyback battery will provide all the light we need for the 17 hours of darkness.
If you want to follow our progress live tracking can be found here. I think Tom's number is going to be 75. If that isn't the case look for Tom S.... in the solo category.
