Re: Todays ride

Actually I've missed a trick. Should've kept it. You could dispense with the water-filter carrying that much water round on a trip. Hmm. Come to think of it, never mind a water-carrier, it'd make an ideal bivvy bag. Easy access into one end, plenty of ventilation, and a little spout for when you ge...

Re: Todays ride

A short, murky and somewhat surprising bimble around central Dorset. I departed the large free car park on Bulbarrow Hill, sped down the road past the new pop-up ice-cream shop (Tiny Tim's) :-bd and along the Wessex Ridgeway past a rather foggy and forlorn Okeford Hill bike park.

1 Jan 2026 - Unrecorded Bridleways to Disappear

Just discovered this, from our equestrian brethren :cry:.

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. :-)

If you search for

Circumnavigate Stevenage and

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...

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...
