Re: Which navigation gadget or app for LEJOG?

As an aside to this thread I had an enquiry to my www.cycle-endtoend.org.uk website asking if the route was signposted!! - needless to say the person was from the USA.

Re: Reflections of LEJOG 2020

Been thinking back to the Summer of last year when I rode LEJOG and what an amazing experience that was and really opened my eyes to what the British Isles has to offer.

Re: Even more items from my stuff

The recent forum exchange above has prompted me to ask- which are the 3 main cycling fora that host classified ads? If this question is seen as indirectly diverting interest away from here, then my apologies. I can't see why the moderators here might object to the answer - there is no "competi...

SOLD Carradice Maxi Saddlepack

This is the one https://www.carradice.co.uk/bags/saddle ... saddlepack - very good condition with very little use as I swapped to an Ortlieb to match my panniers.

£14 + postage to a UK address - or collect in Stratford-upon-Avon

Please PM
