Re: WRT GR on their way.

So I might want to join up with one / more on this one as it'll only be my second venture outdoors this year and I'm still feeling pretty Bambi about all of it.

Will check with people closer to the date. Hopefully I can find a willing victim!

All this talk of wind reminds me of year before last. Was crazy in places, though thankfully only on the first day!

Re: BB200 Entry opening

Hypothetically, if the community centre wasn't to open until next year, could March / April be an option?

Would be unprecedented, obviously, but there's a lot of that going around.

Re: And from the Cumbria police we have ....

Ugh, I'm reminded of a flight I once took to Alicante (nearest international airport to Benidorm)... grim, grim, grim.

Yes, I appreciate I'm a snob. But still, the behaviour on some of those people was absolutely disgusting.

Re: WRT August?

There’s still a faint hope so never say never. I won’t find out the expected recovery time until next week but was told that 6 weeks would be optimistic On the bright side, if you're going to break anything, that's not a particularly bad one to recover from. Still sub standard though, sorry to hear...

Re: YD300

Decided I'm going to give this a miss. Not really comfortable travelling half way across the country when the furthest I've been in the last four months is 5 miles. I also wasn't really sure what I'd do about the usual food stops as I'd imagine a lot of the places I've used previously either aren't ...

Re: Wales open

I had originally hoped to be using the 300 as my triumphant return to bikepacking events following my hip smashage... though having had COVID screw up my lungs I'm now sort of just hoping that I'll be able to get around the 200 instead. I do hope it goes ahead, I really badly need something to motiv...

there is a ticket going Bit confused now. Thought it was postponed til 2021?? Or have i missed an email since the last update?? :smile: I would assume that if you buy a ticket now you'll be able to do it in 2021. Pent up demand for events next year might make them particularly hard to get into!

I have the different size legs thing... I'm more annoyed by it than I should be, I guess mostly because I was always quite happy with the musculature of my legs.

Would love a BB200 this year, last time I entered (2018) I crashed and broke a shoulder so that was that. fingers crossed everything okay by time it comes round.
The key is to keep riding after you've broken something...

...I'm not too smart. :sad:

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

I wonder if it might be possible to get the squares into any other route mapping sites (what with Strava now being premium only for that). Might be nice to get back to a bit of this when I get out on the bike again.
