Re: Bb200 Waffle Thread.

And possibly even in prospect as well - some people go into things knowing it's going to be desperate. Quite a few of [us] on here spring to mind in fact funnily enough :smile: .

Cycle mag

Boner shirt (and boner!) on latest Cycling UK mag cover. Oh dear, we've really gone mainstream :smile: . Sunday colour supplement cover next stop. Or maybe Time or National Geographic. :smile: .

Maybe a caption contest candidate?

Re: I have a confession.......

While we're all seemingly in the confessional box, I think I need to get this off my chest 'cos it's not good to bottle things up is it? While we were bivvied on our deluxe verandah in Hafren forest, we had to be at an angle because it wasn't wide enough. Even then, our feet poked out a bit. My bag ...

Re: OAPs daily release (or 3)

In fact, I considered these 5-Fingers jobbies a while ago for river crossings. It occurs to me that the last three days were basically one giant river crossing :wink: .

Re: Travel thinking

Yes I was a little harsh re the 'miles' there so I slightly retract that. Then again I retract my retraction - aren't you actually describing an 'experience' rather than a 'distance'? Ooh this is fun :wink: .

Re: Travel thinking

Maybe the amount of time to 'settle in' to a ride depends on the length of time you're out. For myself, the very second I step off the train I'm suddenly in 'tramp ride mode'. I feel more alive than usual, my senses are heightened - they're hard enough to deal with 'normally', which is a whole diffe...

I reckon that's a pretty fair account Reg, the Saga Seaside Excursion fully living up to expectations. You were even pretty excited about the coach trip at the end.

Re: OAPs daily release (or 3)

Pickers is definitely right about the Reg Weather Jinx - this, July's Fens rainfest, last year's Salop winter bivvy nightmare, last Sept's Sellafield henhouse-monsoon, etc etc. Worryingly I think I might actually prefer it to so-called 'better' weather. This week just reinforced Stu's view that any ...

Re: Winter Bivi ,Salop,peaks or anywhere

What's the exact most westerly point of Wales? (no not the Welsh embassy in London :wink: ). I can't be arsed to go and look at the map. Somewhere near Knighton is it? Or is it Chepstow come to think of it - that would put the feline amongst the flying rats. You could start with your front wheel on ...

Re: Winter Bivi ,Salop,peaks or anywhere

What was fun last year was the prospect of bumping into other groups converging on Stretton/Bishops from all directions - bit like a mini-WRT but, er, Salopian. As MaM says it doesn't really matter where it is although selfishly speaking I'd prefer something not too far west cos the Winter Event wil...
