Re: Magazine fans.

Not too many spoilers please... looks like I’ll be waiting for the next print run!

Cheers for the heads up. It sounds like it may be a bit more fun and realistic than the off road mag.

Cheers Rob

Goats head soup. Bought from the store in Carnaby street.

Makes a pleasant change, quite laid back.

Re: BB200 2020

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.

Re: The post man's been ...

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.

Re: And the best place I ever slept was ....

I love the deciduous woods immediately to the west of Rhayader. I have slept there a couple of times over the years and it has always been very peaceful. 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: 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.
