I wouldn’t recommend day 3 from above though (the Lairig Ghru). Glen Feshie is a much better Braemar-Aviemore route.
Of course it’s worth checking people with more recent experiences, but there aren’t that many hill passes so I doubt there are many…[Read more]

I came up with the idea that Hazards should flash at a different rate (maybe a double blink gap, double blink) to distinguish it from an indicator.
When I first saw an Audi with dynamic indicators I first thought great, they’ve finally solved that problem.
Then I saw one with its hazards on. Each side just scrolls outwards exactly the same as…[Read more]
I’ve got Shimano XT shifter + mech,GX cassette and KMC chain. It definitely works well enough but I can tell it’s not quite perfect. Have to throw the lever a little bit far to down-shift sometimes, especially under load. I haven’t fiddled with B tension so might see if I can further dial it in.
But I will probably switch to microspline and a…[Read more]

I’ve been around 41-42 mpg per tank recently now it’s winter (have had bike carriers fitted a fair bit too)
Was generally 50-51mpg a tank earlier in the year.
do you just batter round town in that , i’m amazed such a small car gets such a low MPG
surely that should be 60+ mpg ?
Probably a mix of bad traffic and b…[Read more]
Does anyone actually think their trip computer is accurate?
I’ve been surprised. I assumed mine would be overstating, but it’s been pretty accurate whenever I check. If anything it’s more often slightly lower than the actual I calculate (Toyota Auris 1.6 diesel)

I’ve used the Caledonian a number of times and I’m a big fan. But it’s much more expensive under Serco that when it was First so I’ve only used it a handful of times since they took over. And that’s a shame as I think sleeper trains in general are great answer to encouraging rail transport over flights.
I can sleep “fine” in the bunks – not as…[Read more]

Gav: was that this helmet mount (that’s £10)
or is there a cheaper one that comes with a GoPro mount that you could transfer to the 1600?
Does anyone know what GoPro connector Halfords have used? I bought one yesterday and was expecting it to include one based on the on the photos (just the attachment that screws into the light, not the mount for the bike) but my box only contains the rubber strap.
I also might have a dud straight out the box. Haven’t had time to investigate, but I…[Read more]
