Re: If you were offered sponsorship...

Thing is, whatever 'we' have in our heads, it has to match with those we try to connect with.
If it doesn't then confusion, questions, self doubt and whatever else insures....

Re: bikepacking in the Elan Valley

I really don't see any issue with this. I mean they are riding their bikes, carrying kit, enjoying the outdoors, which in my mind is bikepacking. Just because some people do it a little different to others doesn't warrant a negative approach. Surely it's a good thing another film is made to try and ...

Re: bikepacking in the Elan Valley

I was actually asked by 'bad back' Tom to guide these guys on this trip. However I couldn't make it as I went back to work the day before after a 6 week summer break!

Re: Moel Siabod bivvy

nice ride... but i don't seem to be able to find any legal way to cycle up ? Any chance you could share your route? Cheers! Yeah, that's correct. As it's Snowdonia there not much in the way of bridleways. Its also not legal to wildcamp either..... :wink: The route was was clockwise from Capel to Do...

Nice ride pal. I do like siabod. I camped right on summit few yrs ago.
That was my plan but with the heat I resorted to plan B. Still got up there in da morning though. Cracking views today.

Moel Siabod bivvy now with Video

As we had some fine weather descend on us for the Bank Holiday weekend, I treated myself to a great dose of the fresh air fix. Starting and finishing in Capel Curig I made a clockwise loop of Moel Siabod. I've done this one about 5 times previously so I know what is to be expected, big views and hik...

Seems weird to show saddlebags fitted to a bike with a rack - dilutes the message a bit maybe or perhaps it just looks odd.
I'd put that down to poor marketing, I suspect the 'main guy' is on his holibobs... :wink:

Re: Silk Road Mountain Race (SRMR)

At least it still looks like its anyone's race after day 3 comes to an end compared to last year. James Hayden had a late finish to pitch up in 1st.
I wonder if JP is suffering from Salsa blues or is he ready to strike in the 2nd half.....?
