... what these signposts mean?

I've been home for a few days since finishing my JOGLE tour (more on that story later) and have started sorting through my photos. I saw a few decorative signposts along the way and have tried Google to find out what the circular designs (example in second image) are all about. Does anyone know? sus...

Re: North Norfolk Coastline

If you did fancy fish & chips in Hunstanton I can recommend Fishers, opposite the Tourist Office at the top of the green. I ‘ve been there twice in the last month and they were great on both occasions.

Re: "Best" panniers for cycle camping

I will shortly unleash my excel spreadsheet of panniers in this thread I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this... :D Let it not be said that I don't deliver on a threat. I have subsequently colour coded it and attributed my scores to each colour to produce a total score (I mentioned I...

Re: Pannier Advice

How do Ortlieb Roller Classic users tend to fasten them?

Do you (a) mostly use the strap and route it under the hook, or (b) forget the strap and clip the side release buckles together in typical dry bag fashion?

Personally, I find using the strap far too fiddly.

Re: Cycle friendly Wetherspoons

Anyway, our local cycle group used Wetherspoons "The Willow Tree" in Stowmarket recently for a lunch stop on a recent Sunday and found easy to use. Railings round the back to secure bikes to. Finding pubs to accommodate us on a Sunday is becoming more difficult as the good ones only want t...

Re: What happens if you board the wrong aircraft/train/etc.

Most (but not all) commercial aircraft can communicate with HQ from the air. If an aircraft has turned back, I would suggest it's most likely to be on the instructions of someone from the Company on the ground. This was a Japanese aircraft flying back to Japan. I imagine the crew would have preferre...

Re: JogLe sight seeing

Maybe Aprils Fools day falls on a different day in Scotland. Got a bit more time to reply now. Whilst photographing the big landmarks is worthwhile, don't neglect the details of regional specialities that tell the story of your journey; a Cornish pastie, cream teas, orchards and cider in Somerset/He...

Re: teapot?

As discussed, a brew tastes much better with fresh milk. I'm going to take a 500ml vacuum flask next time to help it keep.

I use a fair bit of milk anyway, for porridge, brews, and I'm happy to drink it neat, just for a drink.

Don't want to steal the OP's thunder but after watching the YouTube vid of collection day, I think it must be http://www.cyclesense.co.uk/ in Tadcaster.

Yes, Southleigh is on the itinerary, as is Acorns in Devon, Western Sun Folk at Trelleck, Wrekin View (Salop), Manchester Sun & Air, Lancashire Sun Club, and Solway Sun Club. We've stayed at some of them in the past but are looking forward to visiting the new ones. All have very nice swimming po...

Re: LeJoG - additional fun challenges

For what it's worth, I've planned my JOGLE for next year (start date is set for 21st August 2018) around staying at naturist campsites. They're a bit thin on the ground in Scotland (i.e. there are none) but from Carlisle southbound there are only a couple of nights where I can't make it work with se...

Re: Flixbus

OK, I now understand where I was going wrong. I was initially searching for space for 1 adult as that is how many passengers I was looking for space for. Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 15.47.28.png I should have counted the bike as a passenger (obviously...). The search query then returns only the servic...
