Re: Knox clothing

I have the Knox Action shirt which has back, shoulder and elbow protection. It's quite heavy but once on you don't notice it. Wore it for about 9 days in a row and it was extremely comfortable. Just about to wear it for 14 days in a row. It's a great bit of kit, and you can separately purchase the c...

If you're interested, you could be just in time to enter the Edinburgh Trial, which doesn't go to Edinburgh but goes from Tamworth services on the M42 to and around Derbyshire.

You can upload routes, however, you do have to convert GPX files to KML files, which is easily done via a free file conversion website.
