Re: Which filter?

Thanks all for your input.

I think I'll try the Be Free system, I'll ask Santa for it as we won't be going anywhere before then anyway

Re: Winter Event 2021?

Voted Yes.

But these lockdowns and travel restrictions are only going to get worse as the numbers in the hospital Covid wards grow and grow.

With it being only 12 or so weeks away I would guess 80% of the country will be under a non essential travel banby that date.

Well that's me out, the new Liverpool lockdown says to "avoid non-essential travel". Commiserations JC :sad: . Very galling after getting yourself psyched up ready.

Re: BB200 2020

I've not read the latest update but surely heading out to cycle a 200km loop for pleasure would be "non-essential travel" - or does it just rule out travelling to another county?

Ay up, my Uncle needs a lightweight helmet light to light his path in front of his wheels and to point where he is going when he rides for his morning papers on his hybrid bike. Not too expensive (up to £60 is OK) and the ride is only 20 minutes, but he needs to see any branches on the cycle path wh...

Re: Fat lad in a sleeping bag

What about the Alpkit Cloud Cover quilt for warmer weathers.
https://alpkit.com/products/cloud-cover

Then wear down trousers, boots and a down jacket under it when it's colder.

Or take a look at the Cumulus quilt range for all temps
