Re: Todays ride

Yeah, we can now travel more than 5 miles here in Wales from today! So not far but a 30 minute drive saw me near Dinorwic quarry for a short pootle and to take in the views that I've missed for these past weeks. Saying that it was probably just as chilly as what it was last March! https://live.stati...

Re: How to keep your feet dry in the summer

Whatever the season I just try to not get wet feet. Even when hike a biking I always try to avoid getting wet. However we all know its not possible so as said above merino socks are work and a spare pair for getting changed into during camp.

Re: When?????

Tbh I'm dreading the day when Wales opens up again. Its been great to see everywhere so quiet (not from a business point of view mind). The hills and car parks will be full of people enjoying them but again it'll be the minority that ruin it for everyone else.

Re: When?????

I'm now aiming at July 4th for us in Wales. As I said on another thread when I was out on Saturday I could have easily rolled out the bivvy bag. I don't fancy being the one with his mugshot on the local rag for being out out! But as above said Primark is due to open any day here in Llandudno so why ...

Went to the Dulyn bothy yesterday for a nose. Tbh I was surprised to see it 'open'. I know they don't have locks on the doors but still... Had a look through the book and yes some folk have been staying there, not many though. Annoyingly a few 'intelligent' scousers stayed in April, bearing inmind W...

Re: Wales open

I know it's still here and there's little spikes happening (Anglesey meat factory), but it's such a relief to think everyone can go about doing the things they enjoy (to an extent). No more paranoia for parking in a car park a few miles from home (not dogging btw!). :lol:

Re: Todays ride

...and here's my short film from Sunday's ride. No bikepacking yet as we're still under strict Welsh guidelines but I did have my stemcell on the bars which was a good 'pocket' for the drone. With it being so quiet it would be great to spend the Solstice there again like last year, we'll see..... ht...

Its makes a mockery of us staying in and doing the clap every Thursday. The recent scenes from Durdle Door, the Lakes and these protests up and down the country is showing how some people don't give a f**k. There's a fair few of us towing the line and not heading off to the quiet hills for a bivvy e...

This new jersey came today from the US. I won a comp in a FB group for a photo and received a $100 voucher for a cycle jersey shop. Its got a bike, panniers, front bar bag, tent, a big moon and a pitch with a view. There's nothing else on the jersey.... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4997397075...

I moved away from biking on the coast yesterday as I went to 'check' on a summit :grin: By riding on my own from home and sticking to trails I know well, it meant I stayed within the Welsh governments guidance (Wales has different guidance than England) and i had a tougher by biking to Drum which st...

Re: Looking ahead - what are you looking forward to?

Looking forward to having a few beers and a nice pub meal in Conwy, its better than walking there and walking back every day sober! Bikewise, I'm itching to get back into the Carneddau. I could do it in a day's ride but the way things are here atm, I don't fancy having my mug in the local rag for ab...

Pics from the last couple of days down on the Conwy morfa for a short pedals out but most of all a bit of a de-stress.
