Five fat 4000ers

The Cairngorm 4000ers. It is hard to overstate the potential severity of winter weather in the high Cairngorms, the coldest and snowiest mountains in Scotland. Sweeping unchecked over the rolling terrain, the winds can be ferocious (speeds in excess of 170mph have been recorded). In settled weather a round is feasible on foot over two winter days. Navigation on the featureless plateaux demands close attention, particularly when cairns...

Weekend Wanderings – 27.11.17

Lots of you went in search of snow this weekend; some with more success than others. First up is Fatbiking Europe founder, Gairy Mannion, who set his alarm for 05:00, was over the border in Italy by 05:30 and was riding by 06:00. His reward for such an early start? -13°c (without wind-chill), pitch black skies and 15cm of fresh fluffy white stuff! Looking at these shots, I’d say it was worth it! In the UK, Justin Kellett braved the...
