Re: Dales Divide 2020 .. who's going?

I’ve put this decision off till now but decided to cancel my participation in DD. As a first timer I was really excited about stepping up to the challenge, but everything’s changed hasn’t it? I’m also a key worker and I’m just kissing my furlough that I’d taken for the event goodbye 🤨 Stay safe ever...

Bright Ideas?

Looking for lights suggestions, as I’m doing the Dales Divide for the first time and don’t want to come unstuck with no lights in the middle of nowhere 😁
Any bright ideas for something with a good lumens and holds a long charge please folks?

Hey I’m totally ok with criticism. I’m a cack-handed diy phobe at best! Gonna take what you guys say and learn. Lookout for my next effort 🙏😄

Tin Can Stove

Just made a tin-can stove this evening from tomato tin (Sainsbury’s 😆). Very happy with its performance as it boiled my MyTi mug 650 in no time at all using a tiny amount of meths! Happy camper 😎

Re: Tell me about budget turbo trainers.

I have the tacx flow smart trainer, got it from Halfords 2 years ago...but see they’re still selling it at a pretty good price £180. It works great and has enabled me to get more miles in on Zwift than I ever imagined. Fully recommend. Appr3ciate it’s above budget but it’s all you’d ever need from a...
