Re: Canister refill adapters.

Or just keep your butane only in your bivi bag overnight. It makes quite a difference.

Ruth has just seen the parody and loves it too!

I guess the key is moderation in all things. Riding bikes is always ace. We have never regretted a ride we have been on, but always regret if we havnt been on one.
