it was always gonna happen. everything good becomes mainstream and fashionable once the marketing folk get old of it.

BAM. OS must be having a hard time selling their maps (especially since other people might also have exp losing all the tiles you buy periodically).

It seems to skirt around the subject of whether to use campsites or to wild camp.
Just mentions spending a night outdoors.

Anything that normalizes the overall activity of camping by bike, though, can only be good thing (I hope)

It's already normal.

Cycling-UK formerly the CTC.

I think some of their members have been camping out with their bikes longer than any of us here.

For us, maybe, but not for the general population

Heresy.
Everyone knows cycle tourists just have panniers for show. All they’re interested in is telling you how far they’ve ridden and sleeping in YHA’s :wink: :lol:

Very true Rich, although I do recall a time not very long ago when they wanted absolutely nothing to do with 'bikepacking' :wink:

Cycling UK ran with this last year. It obviously only lasted 4-5 months before they pulled the plug. Can't see any harm in it tbh. There're encouraging folk to do what we enjoy.
Looking forward to throwing more # their way! :wink:
