    learning BGR sections

    I'm keen to become familiar with the whole of the BGR route and hopefully complete the challenge in a couple of years time. I know section 1 reasonably well now, mainly because it's nearest to my house and is easy to complete without having to use two cars or bikes etc to get from end to start.

    A mate of mine is also keen to learn the route but he usually works until 11am on a Sunday, which is the day I tend to go fellrunning (and I prefer to go much earlier than that.) So I'm appealing for anyone in a similar situation really - someone who would benefit from teaming up for lifts etc and who
    is also looking to learn the sections.

    Re: learning BGR sections

    I am currently full of enthusiasm for the BG, having supported George and Gerry a couple of weeks back (Mrs. C. and The Master).

    I am keen but have VERY limited time... probably unlikely to get up there in the next couple of months.

    However, the occasion may arise where our calenders co-incide we could recce any of it, but I particularly need to look at Legs 3 & 4.

    If you were to pm me when you have plans and there's probably an opportunity to come in the coming months... I just don't know when.

    Merrylegs may well be useful contact... I believe he's planning his BG for next year.

    Cheers

    There's no "booking" involved. It's just a matter of letting the BG club know that you are attempting it.

    In fact you don't even need to do that if you aren't bothered about joining the club.
