Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

If you've got an Android phone then the App " Explorer helper for VeloViewer " does exactly what you're looking for Steve. It's essential for making sure you're not missing tiles imo.. Andy's right this is brilliant. Takes a minute to figure out loading the veloviewer file to update the app but onc...

Re: Are we "cool" now... and for how long

Loads of teenagers are wearing Patagonia and TNF like Jamesh says but down "puffer" jackets were fashionable when I was at school in the 90s. The endless...

How did you get on Andy? I loved it! Route was great apart from two busy road sections that were made worse by the bank holiday weekend and great weather. Nice group of people including Chew. Pubs were good! Route is definitely recommended and the group ride too. Day 1: https://strava.app.link/Kjyf...

The TV series league of gentlemen was filmed there. It's a sort of sitcom about a town of inbred weirdos (think goole). A Dark but very funny program.

Shaf - one option I've used prior to the BB200 and also the Winter Event is the Travelodge at Oswestry. It's just over an hour from Llanbrynmair. If the weather's poo then you aren't spending a night out prior to the event itself. Obviously not as cheap as camping :grin: Good call... thanks Bob... ...
