Winter is coming and usually that means my midweek training comes to an end as the dark nights arrive. Yes I commute to and from the day job but I can be running anything up to four different lights on my bars to get the breadth of illumination I want to feel confident. As for training rides on dark country lanes or tearing up the trails on the mountain bike, no chance. So when an Email dropped inviting me to pop up to North Wales and test the XEO19R head torch from LED Lenser I was intrigued. Claiming to have a top output of 2000 lumens and with the facility to convert it from head torch to bike light it seemed too good to be true. So I trundled up to Coed Y Brenin to give it a go.

Berghaus has nominated a John Muir Trust path-repair project on Suilven for the latest round of European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) funding. The community-owned mountain in Assynt in the far north west of Scotland is the only UK site on the shortlist for the online public vote, which has now opened on the EOCA website.
