Re: Great North Trail

I really like my dynamo hub. I use it to charge my front light during the day.
However for a longer trip i would like a dynamo front light that could power night time riding, and then charge a powerbank during the day.
Hope this helps

Re: Something Welsh for summer - Big Bear.

What would be the best bike for the route?
Will a gravel bike with 650b 47s be ok? Or will my rigid 29er be better?

Down trousers?

Mrs B is a cold sleeper, so invariably had a down jacket and hood as well as a nice down bag. She has little down booties but the key to warm feet is warm legs...so does anyone use down trousers? Anyone used the budget ones from Aliexpress etc? Any feedback appreciated
Diolch
