Re: How often do you take a stove?

I started taking one during lockdown rides, due to the lack of cafes and it's just become part of the routine. Stopping for a brew is simply a pleasant thing to do. :-)

Re: Anyone around Herts/ northern Chilterns?

Blimey! Great Brickhill's been my lockdown local ride area the past few months :grin:.
The Old Red Lion is where TheBrownDog, Rich3rd and I came up with the "Three Lions Tour". Lovely view from the beer garden, too.
Small world :lol:.

If you search for
Chilterns+Spring+Thing,
Chilterns+Winter+Bivi,
Circumnavigate Stevenage and
"Smashed avocado on sourdough toast, accompanied by a small cappuccino" you'll get the idea :wink:

Bivi-a-month 2018 for Sun 04 Feb 2018 was full of silliness, too :lol: .

Re: Todays ride

Change of scenery today: Dorset - big views and steep, steep valleys. Wessex Ridgeway for views and a bimble around Okefordhill bike park, Dorset. "The easy way's over there," I was confidently advised and all went well over the first couple of table-tops, past the "4X" sign and into the woods. Stee...

Re: Reasons for riding.

It's like being a 9-year-old again...scrambling in the woods on my Raleigh Chopper with my mates...building dens and cooking tins of beans until they explode :shock: (who'd have thought that would happen :lol: ).

Re: Todays ride

We live in bizarre times... :???: B/way - noted, I'll have a look. I was pondering a Chilterns overnighter from LB to Chicksands & back when things ease a bit more. Plenty of jazz-riding, cheeky tangents to indulge; mostly sand, so it drains well; pubs 'n' cafes in abundance...possible winter option...

Re: Todays ride

Another "long ride Saturday": the perfect complement to 10 weeks of C2WFH around the local woods 5 days a week. My flow has improved immensely :grin: . Similar to Reg's last route: through Woburn deer park (lots of them); past Eversholt cricket pavilion (good shelter for a brew); along the jungly, s...

Plenty of scope for zombie bear, tent pegs and a "...Or Lemon Drizzle Cake" motto. "Mechanised reconnaissance", too (i.e. riding around the countryside, trying not to get spotted)....

TBF, there's as much (maybe more) risk on a couple of "allowed" daily rides as there is in one that happens to be punctuated by an overnight stop.
How have you arrived at that conclusion?
