Midweek uplift at Innerleith
Ok, the story so far..
Just spoken to Tally (nice bloke). The 8 seater cost is £250 for the day (£31.25 x 8 ) & the 16 seater is £512 (£32 x 16). If, say we have the 16 seater and only have 15 bodies in it we would have to split the cost of the empty seat between us.
Sounds like we’ve got the 8 seater covered no problem and probably will be able to do the 16 seater with not much more effort; Tally says he can advertise it on his Facebook page, which has had people fill spaces in the past.
He also needs to get the go-ahead from the forestry commission, so I’ll be emailing him in a mo to confirm the date – am going to go for Wed the 16th. Once he’s got the go-ahead he only needs a couple of week’s notice re which vehicle he’ll be needing. I’d like to get it confirmed well ahead of then as I’m proper anal when it comes to organising things and want to know it’s all sorted so I can look forward to enjoying myself
No idea how the payments side of thing will work, will ask Tally if it’ll just be through his website once the date is arranged, as clearly you wouldn’t want to be sending it to me & I could do without the hassle of collecting payments.
Think that’s about it for now, will update when I know any more; if anyone else wants to come & play, post interest on here.
Edit: If anyone knows any other forums we could get people to join us from, do let me know. Have done same OP on Southern DH & MTB Britain, but no interest as yet.Posted 6 years ago

How weird is it that the 16 seater is more than twice as expensive than the 8 seater, btw?
Only slightly 😉
You would imagine it’d be slightly cheaper, no?
I think the idea is that it’s £32pp, but to make it round numbers he’s knocked a bit off for the 8 seater (which he owns?) against the 16 seater, which he has to hire.
Or something.Posted 6 years ago
Not heard back from Tally as yet as to whether the Forestry Commission have given the go-ahead; I’ll give him a call in a couple of days if I’ve still not heard.Posted 6 years ago
Righty-ho. Not heard back from Tally as yet; have just left him an answerphone message and will get stalking him on FB in a mo…
Looks like we’ll have the 16 seater as we’ve currently got 14(ish) bodies interested. Have had little interest from other forums, but the remaining places shouldn’t be hard to fill.
So far we have:
Vortexracing x 8?

He might be under a bit of pressure to get Descender Bender @Mabie finished before he can do anything else 😉Posted 6 years ago
Daft riders had a go on it before it was properly finished/hardened so has had to rework some sections. Should have been open this weekend 🙄
If I can catch him tomorrow out on the trail I will remind him you are needing a chat
Bad news/Good news.
Just spoken to Tally; in theory we’ve got the go ahead, in practice there are logging operations which *may* mean the top uplift road is blocked.
Clearly we wouldn’t want to gamble that we’ll be able to get past the men at work so I’ve asked him to find out whether we could run it at Ae instead. He sounded positive as hopes to know in the next couple of days.
Hopefully this would still suit people?Posted 5 years ago
