Voile Straps

Is anyone using these? They look great but are seriously expensive, interested to hear if anyone has any experience of them.

Re: Camping in England

Another possibility is https://www.nearlywildcamping.org £20 membership is required. They are a recent development and I haven't any experience of them but they do sound like a step in the right direction.

Re: Twenty a day for 2020?

Finished the year on 10,112 miles, thus achieving the 10,000 miles target. Took things pretty easy in December with only 632 miles cycled, partly due to lousy weather - rain, gales and now ice, but also I just fancied a bit of a rest. Slightly down on previous years but not significantly so. No grou...

Re: Brooks Saddle question

I've long suspected that it's your backside that moulds to the shape of the saddle rather than the other way round! :lol:

Trangia gas burner v cheap Chinese version

Santa bought me a genuine Trangia gas burner (Well I spotted it at a good price in Blacks Black Friday sale). I already have a cheap Chinese version from EBay so I thought I would compare the two. Weight is virtually identical, the Trangia version is 2g heavier. Trangia version clicks firmly into pl...

Re: What's good about winter cycling

Beautiful clear views across to Dorset on my ride today. The crisp visibility on a clear winter's day is so much better than the summer haze.

Re: Memories of the Dawes Galaxy

Back in 1979 my first serious boyfriend had a Super Galaxy. He won my heart by regularly riding it from Leeds to Liverpool to visit me.

Re: What's good about winter cycling

I've enjoyed reading some of the positive comments upthread. Unfortunately at the moment my winter cycling seems to be unending wind, rain, mud, hedge cuttings and punctures! :(

Re: 1944 PCC club dinner

I see the OP hails from the US On that basis I'll mention that particularly when I was little, "dinner" especially "Sunday dinner" was eaten at what we call "lunchtime" now we think we know how to talk proper. I'm only surmising about a time before I was born, but the ...

Re: 1944 PCC club dinner

Purely a guess but what about Pennine Cycling Club? A dinner at Malham would suggest a Yorkshire club.

'The Year' by Dave Barter, Vertebrate Publishing, 2015. ISBN 978-1-910240-43-4 A fascinating look at the endurance cyclists who were brave enough to challenge the year cycling mileage record including, of course, the great Tommy Godwin. Dave Barter is a very good writer and this is one of those boo...

Re: New Decathlon adventure bike

Thanks for sharing this. I had no idea and have signed the petition. Thank you. Advertising a cartridge specifically designed to kill protected birds is appalling. Two points. 1. Decathlon don't sell guns or cartridges in the UK. 2. They sell them in countries where those species aren't protected. ...
