Deputy Editor here ar off-road.cc, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. She's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Anyone clued up on what shernanigans you can pull by doing what has been done here? 

 

Over on road.cc some wag has suggested putting his house into administration before reacquiring it mortgage-free. I does seem a bit louche. I guess creditors lose out, which is like saying you can have stuff and then not pay for it. I wonder if that is allowed down at Go Outdoors?
