Re: King Alfreds Way.

I'm looking forward to giving that a go. Out on the South Downs Way, round King Alfred, back along the Thames Path, then home down the BHF route. Should be fun!!

Don't forget my SD300 is down that way for anyone who fancies giving that a go....

Re: Downs 300 ITT

My route is different to the one DUncan originally proposed, I have ridden it all to make sure it works and there is NO footpath, it's all totally legal, otherwise I wouldn't have put it out there. Well done Javi, I hope it was hilly enough :wink: And if anyone else fancies a go this is the link: ht...

Re: Hunt axle removal

Go onto the Hunt web site and talk to someone on the LiveChat or give them a call, they'll be happy to help you. I'm not at work today and can't think off the top of my head which hub they have, there's a lot of combinations!

Re: Pipedream sleeping bag anyone?

I've got the PIpedream 400 (the older version, not the new one with hydrophobic down), I sleep cold and it's been really good. I've only really been cold doing the BB winter events, but I wore a down jacket too and that helped, a bit!

Re: Sussex bivi a month 2018

Hi Guys,

I'm in worthing and there's a group of us who BAM too, I've annoyingly managed to mis one as I broke a rib and I was up to 15 in a row, grrr!

I'll try to remember to keep an eye on this thread. Anyone getting one in before the end of March?

cheers,

Jimbo

I've been mulling this over today as I'm temporarily incapacitated and can't ride, I've nicked that "Southern Discomfort" by the way as I like it!
