That spot does look fantastic - maybe next time!

Re: Long distance MTB routes in the UK?

Some useful route ideas here, perhaps a section of the EWE as a base for a trip. The Highland Trail looks like a good one but apparently has a fair bit of hike-a-bike, could avoid some of those bits with some route research though.

Thank you guys Marathon hs 368 looks like a good choice.

I have/had XRs in 2.0 flavour and will be putting them on my Disc Trucker when the current Contis wear out.

Too big meaning for the smooth/semi-rough surfaces I mainly do, my current 2.0 are overkill. I love my LHT but it's a hefty bike that I want to 'slim-down' as much as possible as it's a beast in its current form
