Re: Ride / Race idea.

Given most riders wear much the same kit regardless of gender, I'm not sure this will produce much in the way of startling results.

Re: Bikehike alternative?

Bikehike hit the Google Maps buffers a while ago, but had then transitioned to OSM I thought. Sad that it's not working anymore,
I find flicking between the route creator in Strava and the OS layer in Bing Maps good when plotting routes, and then fiddling about with the resultant gpx in Viewranger.

Re: Direct me nowhere

Strikes me this would work best with techniques that don't require stopping, thus ruling out coin toss/dice/spin the front wheel.

Also, what on earth do you mean by "pubs if hungry/thirsty"??? You'll be telling me you pass up opportunities for cake next! :o

Re: Padded shorts: yay, or nay?

I've recently started riding without a chammy. So far I've done an overnighter with 50km either side of sleeping, and a couple of other 50-60km rides. Seamless pants and some Bum Butter seems to be doing the trick.

Re: Best flat pedals?

Plastic bodies are good in the winter, as they're less of a heat sink compared to metal. I'm happy with DMR V6 on my gradventourer (moulded pins), and Superstar El Plastique with metal pins on my HT MTB. The Superstar are currently very cheap at Planet X: https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/PESSELP/supers...

Re: Bivvy a month 2019

As we all know, having equipment you can rely on is very important when heading out for not the wilds. That's why I headed out for a first ride on a new wheelset (self-built, and set up tubeless that very afternoon (and which had deflated itself about 5 minutes before I left the house)), and my summ...
