Re: Bike security for camping tour

Thanks Simon, sorry I should have been more clear on where I'll be going. China > UK, via Central Asia (Pamir Highway, Iran, Turkey) then into Europe, where I'll hopefully find more hostels available. I guess I taking each location on its merit is the best idea, and I certainly take your point about...

Bike security for camping tour

Hi all. About to set off on a multi continent tour, and fear is starting to build that somebody may help themselves to my bike while I'm wild camping. I'll be going a few countries that are somewhat risky, and I was just looking for maybe advice on what some of you have done previously. My plan so f...

Re: Unique Cycling Tour...Riders Wanted

Are you hoping to use the kindness of strangers along the route for showers/sofa surfing/warm meals?

I'm away touring until Oct, but if you're around the Liverpool area any time after that, all of the above will be available to you.

People who have cycled the Pamir Highway...

Just a few question, I'll be doing it in a few months. 1) Just how remote is it? I don't mind at all camping the entirety of it, but are there places for food/water along the route, and if so how often. I do have a Steripen so my main concern is food. 2) Daily distance. I realise this is a question ...

Re: Chromebook for touring?

Great bit of kit.

I've got the Asus C200. Perfect for the tour where you're expecting to be away from power for a long time. 11 hour battery! (tested)

Looking forward to more app (Skype) integration, probably won't be too far away I'd imagine.

Re: China to UK ride

Just bought the book, thanks! :)

So how do you guys think the M+'s will handle the dirt/gravel track? Should they hold up?

I'll have a look at the Exped mat now, thanks!

Anyone have any ideas on the difference in Panniers?

China to UK ride

Right, so I've got my route planned and just have a few questions about kit. I thought I'd put it all in one thread. First of all... a bit of information about the trip as I'm sure some answers will depend on the following Distance - 10,000 miles Bike - Ridgeback Voyage Roads - Mostly tarmac, but wi...
