Yet another tedious yarn from me about messing about in a tent.
Not at all - I love following these sorts of threads. This is the good stuff you get from forums.
Even if I may not easily be able to fit such things in at this point in my life, I'd maybe like to at some point, and it all goes into the noggin' as inspiration and useful tips / gotchas.
+1 to Neil's point.
For some of us, this is the enticement to cycling.
I am, on the whole, not interested in group riding, trail centres, pissing about endlessly consulting colour charts to put bikes together.
Give me a lightweight kit, a solid over engineered bike and a sixty mile loop of wilderness terrain with some fishing and you have given me a weekend of delight!
Great comments. I'm hoping to push some level of inspiration and knowledge onto some of you guys and gals out there, I'm not one for 'Blogging' so this is as close as I'll get
I'm really getting into this short tour aspect of biking, something I have never experienced before but seem to be taking to really quickly.
I'm using the Trans Pennine Trail as a way of experimenting with kit before going a little further afield. The next ride will push things a little more.
