Re: Bell + drop bars + bags

I always thought a bell was mandatory? Only at the point of sale for a complete bike. There's no rule to have it fitted in use on UK highways, except in Northern Ireland. It also opens up an option for a v. cheap or free bell- they normally have loads knocking about at lbs's. They're usually rubbis...

Re: Bell + drop bars + bags

Yep. I haven't had a bell on a bike since I was about 8 (apart from the bell end riding it LOL). A simple "morning!" or "excuse me please guys" has always done the trick. I find that doesn't work well in a busy or 'urban' setting though. Been cycling in London with & without a bell this last week, ...

Re: Dubs Hut Day VIsit

Thats the puppy Al, doesn't show it that well on the map, but above it is a boulder field that you have to climb down to get to the bothy..

It's a longer, but probably easier route, to head up from the Buttermere side & fork-off onto the footpath after Warnscale Bottom..

It's prob about 15-20mins from Dubs Al, not the easiest to get a loaded bike to from there though..

If you're ever heading back to find Warnscale, it's worth adding a POI flag on your Garmin. It's not the easiest place to find if you've not been before, especially in the dark!
