Re: Anyone local to these areas able to review (sections of) my route pls?

I'll pop those bits over as a GPX by email. Just need to run a few errands first.

Re: Anyone local to these areas able to review (sections of) my route pls?

After that I'd look at staying on route 70 through towards Kelsall (gravel detours available if required...). Other than the trying to turn right off Warrington Road (before Acton Bridge), it's quite a pleasant route and isn't too busy compared to the main roads you're on at the moment. Simon probab...

Or there's a slightly longer road route that runs by the United training ground:

Re: Anyone local to these areas able to review (sections of) my route pls?

I'll share these suggestions here in case anyone else is interested. The section along Route 6/Fallowfield Loop/TPT from Reddish through Chorlton makes sense. It's almost all tarmac and as long as you're not heading through on your own in the evening/late at night you should be fine (there's occasio...

Re: Travelling across Europe quickly - how?

Seat 61 is a good source of train info around Europe, their recommendation is to travel to Bari (Italy) and take the ferry:

They also collate requirements for bikes https://www.seat61.com/bike-by-train.htm#Italy

Re: Anyone local to these areas able to review (sections of) my route pls?

Can take a look over the weekend and make some suggestions, especially the run into Manchester and out to Wales. Ridden that area quite a bit over the last couple of years.

Will pm you later in the week for a GPX. Away from the computer for the next couple of days.

Re: Wanted: Ti Jones bar

Either, ideally both! Ti is 99.5% for looks :lol: I'll probably end up getting a set of Al loops for one of the bikes I'm building but figured I'd ask as a set of the original, shimmed loops and a skinny 25.4mm stem would look nicer. Similarly I'd be curious to try the original cut version one of tw...

Updated and bits added, inc. Das Light and Millhouse. Neither are stupid cheap but hopefully enough of a saving to tempt someone.

FS: Stocking fillers (Criteron, Nitto, Big Agnes, Revelate)

First up we have the Criterion Quantum 200 , this was a stupid, panic purchase from the Bearbones shop in August last year for a trip I should have known wouldn't happen and even if it had, a smaller, lighter sleeping bag wouldn't have made it any easier. I'm sure it's a fantastic piece of kit but I...
