Re: Train reservations

Is there a reason you don't book online? Cycle reservation tickets are not available to book online, I thought that was made clear already, the travel tickets one can do online but the hassle is always the reservations for the bikes. Bike reservations for the east coast can be booked online. I've d...

Re: Cutting minimising nocturnal tent exits

Go camping in Africa, after the first time you exit the tent and see reflecting eyes, you learn not to need to go in the dark.

Re: CampinGaz adaptor

Thanks, just ordered a Mercator Gear PAT adaptor based on these reviews.

Heading to the Netherlands and Germany when the sun comes out - hopefully will get the chance to try it out.

CampinGaz adaptor

Hi all

I have a screw fit stove that I use for camping.

Is it possible to get an adaptor to allow me to use a CamlingGaz push and twist style canister?

Would make gas supply more easy.

Re: met office

I like the Met Office. I have a soft spot for them for calling D a Day right and feel the BBC shouldn’t have dropped them. I’ve even invested in their weather app. Not sure they had a choice. Government require BBC to put services out to competitive tender and the Met Office was nowhere near. Perha...

Re: Merging GPX files

Can you not just use notepad, copy the trackpoints from the track in one file and paste on to the end of the list in the second?

Re: Tour bike setup and Equipment

Note to self: find some Geman friends, go cycling with them carrying a rucksack :) Definitely, just remember not to mistakenly praise the wrong local bier or get in to the whole "ossie" vs "wessie" thing. Seriously though - for the price, they're really good. Manufacturer is &qu...

Re: Tour bike setup and Equipment

I tried a rucksack last year on a short trip with German friends. Afterwards, one of them bought me these panniers and sent them to the UK: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/91SesBrkXeL._SY355_.jpg Think they were 40Euros with a rain cover. They're not 100% waterproof (especially sinc...

Re: First aid kit?

I do carry a small one on all rides, because I take blood thinners and even a small nick takes ages to stop without the clotting stuff I bought in the US.

Re: Along the Thames - upstream from Richmond

I did a similar route last year - didn't use a ferry, but ended up back on the Middlesex bank for the ride in to Staines. Must have crossed over at Chertsey. If you want to go on past Staines, cross over back to Surrey at Staines, then ride through Runneymede, past the Magna Carta site and in to Old...
