Re: My BB200 Black Badge (training) Thread.

Can you do your prayers whilst riding?
If one followed the Tibetan Buddhist way of thinking, you could attach prayer flags to your seatpack and pray while riding?

Re: RWGPS fill in the map challange.

The legal thing also means no bivvy spots*. I've got a route on the site, with a number of campsites suggested. I've never stayed at any of them.

Last night's bivvy tipple was Brew York's Barton 1792 Empress Tonkoko – 10.6% Brewed and released just once a year, each Barrel Aged Empress Tonkoko release spends at least 12 months in a unique selection of Bourbon barrels.

A big driver for me is to create more diversity in cycling and the outdoors, so I've offered to help out with the Peak Gravel Gang and MTB Colour Collective for starters.
There's also the prospect of a bit of commercial work alongside my regular employment.
