Re: King Alfreds Way.

There is a tap at the rear of the church in Thursley, go round the left side. I was on empty so was a good find.
There is another 1 round the back of The Bustard Inn on Salisbury Plain which hasnt been a pub for 12years. Its now a church and charity. Tap is by the back door and they didnt mind :-bd

Re: King Alfreds Way.

Intending to ride KAW this weekend, work allowing. Will test James's statement that it's a comfortable 2 day ride. This is a cracking route. If you keep moving 2days should be achievable. Starting off route at Calne we did 250miles 28hrs moving. Loads of bivi spots. Definitely a 29er route over a g...

Re: No wonder we went metric.

IIRC from the documentry the mechanic responsible for this near tragedy had trudged his way across the yard to a dimly lit shed, shoved his hand in a box of bolts and thought 'aah they look the same'! :shock:
Look at the investigation.

Argyll trail with a few extensions & a spin over to Mull maybe?? That would be 5-600+ miles. Definitely not dull!

Re: FS - Singular Swift with Alfine11 (punting sale of bike in need of love)

I have a Swift with an alfine 11 and its ace. When I had it 3x9 it had toured in France, been across Spain with Duncan and round the Cairngorms etc. Brilliant bike. I have a set of rigid forks if anyone is interested in them to go with the OP's bike https://bearbonesbikepacking.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopi...

Plan was to enjoy the route and see all the places i hadnt seen before so no night riding. I started at 9am the 1st day then it was 7-7.30 ...
