Re: Folding bikes

There are some bigger wheeled folders. See Alee's website Cycling About. He has used a few and done some touring.

Re: The best bikepacking bike is?

Thanks. I will check on the map.
I've spent a few nights there. The north side would be a hard on a bike. Muddy trail between tight boulders. South side would be better.

Re: The best bikepacking bike is?

What is the Loch Avon idea? (Below Cairngorm?)
I usually hike there for a night and fly fish. Thought it would be too boggy for a bike. Will be going in a week or two.

MULL

I am thinking about doing a trip on Mull. In Scotland now. Lochaline ferry over. I defo want to camp at the waterfalls -Eas Fors? I passed them a few years ago on a road ride. Looking at Maps.me and my 1971 Bartholomew map, I cannot see any decent non-road trails. Anyone got any ideas? Also any tips...

Re: Tents pots frames odds n ends FOR SALE

I am heading up north (Lakes/Scotland) for a few weeks holiday with the bike and canoe. :grin: Some of the items are still for sale but I won't have access to them until I get back. :sad: I'll be taking the North Face tent and MSR pots, so these can still be sold/posted while I am away. :grin: Cheers.

From when? This week, this year?
From when we started discussing it - just as a suggestion.
That would be last week some time.

Clever! That nicely excludes my previous application.

ABC, for those with hairs on their chest experience, stands for Annapurna Base Camp.

In winter I use thermal undies. Good for going out for a piddle.
Other times a silk liner and running shorts. I am always conscious of being disturbed during the night, so always like something on.

Re: 3491 ft bivvy

There are a few of us on here who have biked in Nepal. So when the heights get over 4000m we can start the competition.

Something about 'friends n family' means no charges?
