Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, My point is the fact that you will seldom see cyclists where they shouldn't be. I'm not sure about that. These days I walk (a lot) on the Moor rather than cycling, and I do regularly see evidence of bikes passing in the most improbable places. I recently met a young chap coming down the south ri...

Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, Late post last night, so confused path with boundaries, corrected now . This is the point, bicycles make hardly any mess apart from an occasional tyre track imprint like walking boots horses and cows hoofs. On Mick's point. All the tracks from belstone to hangingstone to meldon reservoir are alm...

Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, Yes you're true in what you say. The main problem with DARTMOOR is that you are very limited in where you can cycle because of the terrain. When it's dry some cyclists will go anywhere and where the grass is short it's possible to cycle across open moorland. But because the terrain varies so muc...

Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, There are only certain places that you can physically cycle on Dartmoor due to its terrain. As far as I'm concerned today Any track as long as it's not on private land ie as long as it's access land, There isn't a problem. If large teams of people start cycling where they shouldn't it won't be l...

Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, People have been calling it Puffing Billy for years. And yes it leads up to Redlake clay pits and your conical clay tip which can be seen from miles on the southern moor. I'm not sure what the councils do today, I know that DARTMOOR authority doesn't advertise all Off road cycling routes just th...

Re: Pebbledashed Seat Tube Safe to Repair?

Hi,
If that's all there is to offer, I would look around for some better examples, unless you think it's got an antique worth?
Look for some bikes with more paint on the frame.
Does it have to be a road bike?
And MTB would get you going with some slicks on it

Re: Princetown Railway Line

Hi, It's now very slick indeed. 28 or even 23's if you want. The biggest problem is getting lost at plymstock , actually plymouth end getting on or off the route. You won't see much of railways though. If you want railways- Start at princeton - yelverton (burrator) - yellow mead farm - avon dam (get...

Re: Why many rear racks no longer triangulated?

Hi, I had Blackburn racks on my Tourer. I have since ditched the rear rack. I have probably over 10 racks three are on bikes. What is missing from most racks, Is the extra out rigger on the rear of the rack, To stop the pannier hitting the spokes. I personally think that more problems will come from...
