Re: LeJOG audax-style anyone?

The A30 is a nightmare. http://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/20-895/ The A30 - can't see this route in detail but it (edit, seems to?) use some of the A30 nr Truro and Oakhampton. A31 east of Winchester. Prob a few other bits. I know audaxes seem to use more A-roads than I ride on my own trips but I...

Re: LeJOG audax-style anyone?

150 tired riders pushing themselves through the night on the main road network. Oh joy. Thats another way of looking at it. Could be argued that many of us do that on our regular rides also as there's always a road connecting the offroads. Am hoping to have good recuperation between days :smile:

FS: Garmin INreach Explorer Plus

It's in orange. Includes a lanyard but comes without the box. I'm reliably informed that the user manual can be found online. It looks bling and as one very articulate BBer described it, "it's powerful kit". Looks really fantastical when turned on. Unfortunately after much research on here, I've fin...

Re: Tell me about Garmin InReach

Logging is useful if you want people watching the explore website to get a “detailed” trace of your track. When logging internally the inReach will use cellular data (when available) to “in fill” the iridium tracking points For the most point there is little need to internal logging. So... If I'm g...

Re: Tell me about Garmin InReach

Thanks for all the input everyone. Looks like the general feel (for my needs at least) is that its an expensive option. I'd probably only use for 1 or 2 events in the years and battery draining down, in tracking 10 min intevals, I reckon its gonna be an expensive option in terms of weight of extra p...

During the past few weeks of overspending :sad: I suddenly became the proud (and maybe useless as I'm not sure I've got a use for it yet as I've never even achieved a full set of BAMs and I probably wouldn't carry it on a BB200 event...
