Re: Gopro / ipad advise

Wow, this all sounds so complicated :roll:

Ideally it would be good to sit with someone, watch and learn. In view of lock down not sure when that's likely :?

Re: Gopro / ipad advise

Ultimately I want to make videos while I'm cycling from Cairo to Cape Town. I'll be travelling quite lightly, and plan to use powerbanks to keep the Gopro and devices charged during the days when I don't stay in accommodation with electricity. I understand the sim cards in the Gopro can fill up quit...

Re: Gopro / ipad advise

Thanks folks. My phone is a Huawei Mate Lite, running Android. I tried running the free Gopro app that Simon posted in the initial reply. That app struggles to connect to the actual Gopro. I bought the Gopro brand new. I met with a mate who has put many bike tour videos on YouTube, and he advised th...

Re: European Holiday 2021 suggestions ( flattish terrain )

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Sorry I should have clarified I'm looking at next year, post Covid. I like the idea of heading off almost spontaneously, and also when heading back, not being tied to a definite departure date and time. Great to hear tickets bought close to departure are not overly ...

Re: European Holiday 2021 suggestions ( flattish terrain )

Could those who've bicycle toured using ferries from England to Europe (particularly Hull) please advise approximate prices? Also is prebooking essential?

Re: UK to Cape Town is it viable?

Hello Sanfairyanne. I was planning on riding Cairo to Cape Town, starting in the 1st September 2020. Obviously that plan has been put on hold tentatively for a year, but who knows? I'm in a WhatsApp group of people who are currently doing, or have done this trip. Prior to Covid, there was a well bea...

Re: Best Garmin type computer for bicycle tourist?

Thanks everyone for the help.
I'd like a dedicated device as opposed to an app/smartphone.
After reading the review link JDSK posted, I'd be interested if anyone has experience using the Garmin Edge Explore?

Re: Cairo to Cape Town, record for +50year old?

Thanks so much everyone. As suggested I'll contact the TDA etc. I'm sure I can learn from them. I've previously travelled extensively in Africa, and have also done a 15month unsupported, solo bicycle tour through North, Central and South America. The C-CT I'm planning is very much a personal challen...

Re: Cairo to Cape Town, record for +50year old?

Thanks Mattheus. I'll try contacting the people you mentioned. I think it's safe to say Mark Beaumont's record will be safe! :D
