Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

Just to let the camping Wimps know that I will be providing 2 suitcase camp cookers (same as the one Ken had) for you to use and we will also have a kettle for use. In addition we will set our twin burner/grill up for use as long as it ain't raining

According to cycle weekly it is the same route Paul, tragic! Helmet for me is usually worn but I respect those who don't use them. Personnel preference I feel

Re: Hardest UK climb?

There are 2 climbs out of Sidmouth (Devon) that are not nice. Peak Hill is tortuous, and Salcombe hill, to the observatory is almost vertical.....not my favourites!

Re: Bikes on Trains UK - what do I need to know

Just reading all these replies 're bikes on trains and it saddens me. Surely in this new age of cleaner transport the rail companies should be promoting bike travel, and making it easier to transport them. It seems like we have taken a backwards step...years ago guards vans/compartments were crammed...

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

I can remember being witness to the bravest bit of cycling I have ever witnessed. How our injured rider kept going is beyond me.....that took determination

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

What made it even better is that as the youngest in our group I got to chat to some very experienced riders which was definitely beneficial to me. Ken and Swoop talking about their club, Paul chatting about Audax riding, Alasdair and David talking about their rides, a fantastic mix of cycling stories.
