Re: Campsites Pembrokeshire/Gower

West hook farm, near Marloes is lovely although I haven't been there for a few years. I should think it will be quiet before the summer holidays. Marloes beach is amazing and there are great views of Skomer. Our favourite is a bit further north just across the border into Cardigan - Nant y Croi, Mw...

Re: My 10 day JOGLE route

Day 8 just South West of Thornbury it looks like you are following the NCN 41. I would go via the 410, this goes through Olverston and Easter Compton avoiding a bike path beside the A403. Also after you have crossed the Avon via the M5 it goes through Pill to Portbury avoiding an off road, and the l...

Re: Budapest

I've never been but it's on my list. How many trips have you needed for an implant? I have a bridge that I have been told won't last much longer and an implant has been suggested. I've been considering Hungary for both the tooth and riding. Having said that the dentist that put the bridge in said ou...

Re: Schwalbe marathon plus tyres - traction?

I commute on Marathon + and have ridden over 40,000 miles over the past eight years in my current job. My return home starts with a down hill about 35 mph including a corner which I don't brake for but most cars do slow for. I'm also carrying one pannier of fire wood. The rest of the ride is across ...
