Re: URGENT!! - WRT - Grid update to include free Birthday Ca

Harumph!!
Spent a wad of cash a week or so ago at Wiggle and got no Haribo and no "performance" coffee, and now there's no bloody cake either - I'll be going by there(ish) on Saturday as well.

I don't qualify for this either (that's an upside :cool: )

Re: Across the Vaucluse

Looks like you had a great time, thanks for posting - great pics.
I had an excellent time road touring in that part of the world a few years ago, I have 10 days in May to use, reckon I might find my way back down there.

Re: Some things that I learned at the weekend

I'm assuming that's a bicycle 3.5? It is indeed, lack of experience notwithstanding it did well. Looking back I likely could've picked a better spot as well. Not really too dischuffed to be honest, just more practice needed Nice pics Cheers. The scenery makes it easy though. Looking at the bike and...

Some things that I learned at the weekend

Now then, I've spent several nights out with just a bivi bag/sleeping bag and a lot of nights out using a tent. Until Saturday though, I'd not used a tarp for a night out. Steep learning curve then. I picked Saturday night (although it may seem odd) because I knew that some rain was forecast. I didn...

Re: travelling with bike, by train.

If you can, book a good while in advance. Book singles rather than returns, and be a bit flexible on where you're going. There's not many advantages to public transport, but one of them is completely different start and finish points: eg, last year's tour started in Inverness, finished at Ardrossan....

Re: 700c Off Road Clincher

On ONe Gravel Roads are great
Yes they are, I really liked mine until the rear tread delaminated after less than 800 miles. I've not heard many tales of this so I guess it's likely an isolated thing. Following this with interest now as I need some new ones.
