Self supported self powered 46r (by bike!)

Self powered self supported 46r by a local VTr. All done in under 14 days.
Jeff's a good guy.

The article suggests that the BearVaults are no longer allowed in the High Peaks. This is not true- they are still permitted but their use is discouraged.

Feel free to comment on the article... or write the website or the author for a correction.

I think its great that someone in the east decided to take on the 46r by bike. I've always been inspired by Justin Simoni's exploits, especially his self powered 14r Odyssey:

You can still see the thread over on the high peaks forum where he planned out the route with the help of the experts there. Very impressive feat!

I guess the most awesome thing about this is that he just throws in a Great Range Traverse in the middle of the whole deal

Hey Jim - do you have a link over there? Curious to see the planning side of this.
