The best way to figure out how your routes and tracks work is to play with them. Make up a route on your computer, follow a known path, like your commute to work, convert it to a track and export it to your device. Once […]
For this post I’ll touch on the basics of navigating using offline maps on an old android tablet. Whatever devices you use will no doubt be different, but there should be a few common areas where the same advice will apply. We’ll start slow and […]
A couple of spins to Tipp over the weekend saw us explore some old, and some new trails, and make some new friends too. It’s great when you meet another group of riders that you kinda know to see from previous events, but don’t really […]
Had a great day out at this ‘Roadbook’ event. There were fast sections, technically challenging obstacles, punctures, and some laughs too. Great bunch of guys n girls and a great event. Huge thanks to all the organisers :o)

Well.. another year, another Paddy Dakar. This year was a bit of a wash out, or maps were wet, the big ‘berg was having fuel pump problems, there was a broken chain on a CRF, just nothing seemed to be going our way .. so […]
