Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

Thinking back on it I did feel a bit of something going on in the other ear shortly after so I think it went straight through :wink: I personally think that night follows day so for instance if I was hoping to bivvy on the 1st of the month it would be the night after the day of the 1st .

Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

I loaded the bike convinced myself it wasn't that cold and I have boug...

Re: Overnight stays still banned?

You can social with up to 6 people outside. Nothing wrong with a bivi. As far as I am aware we are not in any of the tiers in England at...
