Re: Drakes Trail (part of the Devon C2C - NCN27)

Hi,
Devon..............worth the high fare for sure, I wouldn't live anywhere else.
You don't even need suspension or knobblies either, practicality and gears win all ways I.M.O.

Re: Good place to find UK bikepacking routes?

Hi, I had to look up "Bikepacking" Roll_With_It_Mix-n-Match_pic.jpg I admit that this is what got me back into cycling after a ten year hiatus. But a old style MTB with a rack and mudguards and panniers, lights and hybrid tyres, all you need is a OS explorer map and off you go. Means that ...
