Re: Recommend me a tent for a world tour

Is the chain REI?

I was trying to find you a link to a couple (Dutch I think) who are cycling rtw. They are using a Marmot limelight tent with great success. I will dig more for the link.

Good luck with your tour.

Re: Recommend me a tent for a world tour

If your tour starts in the USA, could you arguably get a better tent cheaper there? It could be ordered online and ready for collection on arrival perhaps. I have been trying to find a link for you of a couple (Dutch I think) who are currently cycling rtw. I believe they are using a Marmot Limelight...

Re: Thermarest Neoair Xtherm Large Mat & Sheet

Another daft question. What's the point of the sheet? Am assuming a sleeping bag would go on top of the sheet. I have a Thermarest Auriga quilt. The sheet protects the mat. Yes, a sleeping bag would be used on top. The sheet is merely a protector if one wished to sleep without a bag at all. The she...

Only selling one.

The 2nd photo is showing the protection sheet fitted.

Re: Round the world 2020/21

Decision made...... well, thats a good start at least. Seems as though you will be against the prevailing winds all the time? May I enquire who you have used regarding insurance - if any at all? As regards going solo again after Samarakand, are you thinking that you will be able to cycle home in 90 ...

Re: Cycle Travel question!

Thank you both for your help. I have tried both ways without success. I presume one is supposed to see the finished article in Preview? All I ever see is [quote][/quote]. I highlight text and paste in the middle of the quote quote. Obviously I'm missing something.... "BRAINS!!!" - I heard ...

Re: Cycle Travel question!



Thanks for the info.

Highlighted your text and pressed the quote button and got what you see on the first line.



Did it again - just to be sure I was doing it wrongly.

As I said, my help would make for a lively debate.

Re: Cycle Travel question!

Thanks Richard, [quote]It weighs up a lot of different factors: surface type, climb (both total and gradient), signposted routes, motor traffic, minimising turns, and so on. So there's no hard and fast answer - it won't necessarily choose the lowest pass or the shortest route, but will look for a &q...

Re: Cycle Travel question!

Morning All, First off, I have used cycle travel quite a lot and am very content with it. I know how to use it but would like to understand how it arrives at some of its planning. eg. If a route is asked for from Nantes to Constanta, CT gives a route at variance to EV6 - which is for cyclists. Not a...

Re: Hat

Try looking at Rohanhttps://www.rohan.co.uk/mens-travel-and-outdoor-accessories Trailblazer or Escaper might suit. I have the Escaper - it folds away easily into a jacket or trouser pocket and has a cinch cord to adjust for fit. I would definitely consider the trailblazer with optional fold away cow...
