just underneath the "History of the Cromford and High Peak Railway" which is allocated next.
There's an interesting Facebook group "The Lost Cromford and High Peak Railway" that has some great photos to enjoy!

Re: Anyone have a 'micro camper?'

Is there still the van place in Llangurig?

Stopped at the cafe next door and enjoyed trying to see which vans were big enough to sleep in.

Maybe worth a look?

For the price it's a bargain and will match a BB Jersey.

It's got to be better than a 6 Yr old Specialised lid which let's the sweat into my eyes... At least I'll be able to see what I'm crashing into!

Looking forward to her post ride video...

She’s a south Devon rider now and her videos are fun to watch. I’m sure she will finish but I’d imagine she’d be better asking advice here than on YouTube.

Good luck everyone taking on the challenge this year.

Always nice to come home to a surprise, two parcels one from that man in the middle Wales shed & a replacement camera after the old one was dying at the end of warranty.

Thanks Stuart for the stove and for the route down to Llani. Brilliant.

Re: One for Reg perhaps.

Not too much to do with cycling although there is cycling & the odd bivvy but Jasper Winn's book Water ways is quite a nice read.

Ties in nicely with the Canal boating on this thread.
