Re: Pillows

So it's basically a toss up between the Sierra Designs DriDown Pillow at £25, and the Exped Pillow Pump, also at £25. With the knowledge that either may, or may not, be comfortable, what I'm looking for... Which one to try first... 🙄

Re: Pillows

For a long time, I used a Klymit Kush. I fold it into 3 and put my buff round it to hold it all together. Forms a nice high pillow, so good for side sleepers. Recently I've started to use a Sierra Designs DryDown pillow. Not as light or compact (not stupid either) but feels more like a proper pillo...

Pillows

One nice thing about the emergency BaM rules and being in the garden, was the ability to use my full size pillow. On the three actual bivvies I've managed, I've not taken enough extra clothing etc, to stuff into one of the dry bags to use as a pillow. I've been looking at the ones on ULOG , but they...

Re: Bear Bones Bikepacking Events Calendar.

In the meantime, does anyone know what events have been scheduled for September this year? I'm just trying to ascertain overlaps between a proposed Cairngorms Loop 300 group start and anything else.

Re: Todays ride

A heavy week, for me at least, with over 378 km covered over five rides. I came to the conclusion on yesterday's ride , that I need either, a set of 650b wheels, or a whole new bike. The new bike would be for bikepacking and off road slop rides. mainly so I can run large tyres with proper tread patt...

Re: What do you think about when you are riding?

I generally start of thinking about something in particular, a problem I need to solve or something, but quickly forget about it. I then get engrossed in the ride. Can I sustain this effort on this bit of bridleway? Fucking horses. Stop. Photos. Fucking dogs off the lead. Fucking litter. Oh, what wa...

Going to turn into the village mechanic at this rate. Friend popped round the other day holding his left crank arm, not sure how he managed to have to fall off. Long story short, he handed me his credit card and asked me to fix it; he nearly got a villa in Crete as well as this lot: http://media.bob...
