We are headed up to Glentress via Whinlatter this weekend/next week and looking at the weather report this morning I am wondering what to expect, haven't ventured north of Llandegla to ride before. Is there a high chance of mud? (need for spare trainers) I'm trying to make sure I am prepared for anything that might happen while not overloading the car (we have camping stuff to take too)

Also on a side note; I snapped my chain for the first time on wednesday since fitting it about 6-7 months ago, should I replace it before heading up?

Really looking forward to the trip, should be awesome! :D

Cheers guys,
