/ Biking the Walking Haute Route
Or failing that, anyone walked it and cast a mountain bikers eye on it?
I know it's been done but struggling to find much info.
I tried on STW and got a few folks that knew it had been done but noone with personal experience.
I hadn't seen that. Looks pretty good.
Aye that does look reet braw.
If you hadn't seen that then maybe you missed the link to a map showing the route taken by Vaude riders on Pink bike.
Long time nay see.
Is it yerself Bob?
Thinking about doing it with Sanny in the summer having done the TMB a few years ago.
There are quite a few scree traverses. Also one section where you traverse a mountain on a very small path that would be very dodgy to bike on unless you has super balance. I was basically creeping around it worried to even walk briskly! but I used to be a bit of a wuss back then. I think going on a bike would be excellent fun just do lots of research...that video i good.
Happy to carry the bike for a significant amount of time to access a good descent.
Think I'm going to go for it.
