Thanks to Orange for the loan of the bike, Nigel Page for the loan of the skills, No Fuss for the loan of Ben Nevis and Sweet Protection for the loan of the sweet protection.
Thanks are probably also due to everyone who stayed safely out of Chipps’ way on the course, thus ensuring minimal Mountain Rescue involvement. You’re all winners!
