There is something about it that feels "soft" and welcoming. I quite often try and include it when joining the dots on BB events. Si If it’s the ...

Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

European Bikepacking Trip My first bivvy a month, fingers crossed it's not the last... left home & cycled a full 5miles to a hill by a quarry with the sound of the trains on the mainline.

Re: What does your perfect event look like?

Just reading through the posts and have to agree that a ride to a grid ref to get the next waypoint sounds brilliant. Even better if all the points are on one map?
I’m sure it will be fun whatever you plan.

Cheers Rob

Great effort, that’s some trip! Especially the bottom of the moors bit.

Si is right about the Dartmoor way. A great way to have a story to tell...

Anyway, keep up not being soft!

Re: (A bit of ) the Southern Way

Really enjoyed that too.

Did you have the guidebook or just the GPX file? Definitely a good inspiration for a ride. Also agree with you & Jam Bo, that bit around the bottom of the moors is a pain!
