Perhaps a sticky link with some education might help change people’s minds, I’m sure many don’t realise how long term the damage is and perhaps think the grass will grow back pretty soon ?
Good idea, educate as many as you can Stuart, keep up the great work.

Looking at there photos they were on ebikes too, ebikes to bike pack???
Why would them being on ebiker be an issue?
As Johnny says above

I guess it's not a problem in that case.

Re: sleeping problems and cures ?

If you don't need a alarm in the morning, give good quality soft ear plugs a try.

I find it cuts out all the noises and helps clear my mind too (no idea how it does that), but if you've not slept with them before it may take 2 or 3 nights to get used to having them in there.

I’ve finally found MY (almost) perfect way to stay dry

After many years of bike riding in the rain here in the UK and getting very wet and cold many times, I feel that I’ve finally found MY (almost) perfect way to stay 100% dry from the rain (well 95 to 99%’ish) Over the years I’ve realised the following are all rubbish and a waste of money as they simp...
