Slightly odd one this but here goes. A couple of people have been in touch about entering the WRT but have concerns about their ability/kit/or just the fact that they're bikepacking virgins ... with me so far?
At Forest Freeride (yes that's me but I'm sure you knew that) besides the usual skills training, guiding, etc we also run bikepacking trips and there's two trips before the WRT ... are you still with me?
The outcome of the above is that a couple of people are booking themselves on these trips to gain some experience/try kit out/get an idea of the terrain. A sensible idea, so I thought I'd throw it open in case anyone else fancies it. If you're interested you can find out more here ... http://www.forestfreeride.co.uk/
