Re: The return of a classic - pop up T shirt shop.

Perhaps less people in here would be male if things were a teensy bit more inclusive. Perhaps. I've often thought the same about horse riding and netball. Trouble is, I have to pick one style and that will always be the one with the greatest appeal. These are 'unisex' so I figured I was doing my 'i...

Re: Cordillera (Tour Divide) books

I recall that I found the first few to be the most interesting. Later (with some exceptions), it all seemed to get somewhat 'samey'.

Maybe a few weeks early?

Apparently, it'll prevent some nicking your bike. I do love the way that your bike sticks out the end in its own little pocket. I think what perhaps worries me most is that someone will buy it. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/711bc3hGLjL._AC_SL1500_.jpg https://images-na.ssl-images-...

Anyone got a link so I can get more info on RTTS and past events.
It's really not an 'event' fella, 'tis just a ride, same as the Winter Bivvy or most things I suppose.

Re: Can We Have A Nationwide Post Lockdown Group Bivi Ride?

Mike and myself had a discussion about a RTTS last year and we both (independently) thought the Gower would provide a superb venue in terms of riding, splashing about in the sea and eating chips. However, I do appreciate that it's not exactly handy for most people.

Re: The return of a classic - pop up T shirt shop.

Does it have to be entirely static?
I figure it can have both flow in and flow out but you should really take your water from the main body in order to qualify.

Isn't the RTTS a solo ride where everyone rides to the sunset from wherever they are...
No Shaf. Everyone joins forces and rides together.

The return of a classic - pop up T shirt shop.

By popular demand, you can now prepare your post lock-down wardrobe and adorn yourself with a BB classic. • Shirts are charcoal grey with light grey print. Heavy duty cotton - not bad shirts at all. • Sizing is pretty much standard T shirt fare - no need to go up or down. • You should receive your s...

If anyone is looking for a reasonable quality car-camping tent or something cheaper to throw up in the garden for the kids, Sports Pursuit have some reductions on Vango which might fit the bill.

Re: Straightening A Silwing Ridgeline?

Unfortunately the results weren't great. Running a line between the poles under the ridge line made little difference. Yes, trying to support it with a line will do nothing Ray. Even if it did alter, you'd likely then end up with slack somewhere else. You've kind of got to work with what you've got...
