Re: Loading top of rear rack

I have a Carradice saddlebag (as well as a pair of AGU rear bags) which is brilliant. I don't know what I would put in front panniers. I usually put my 42" screen telly and armchair in the front right pannier and a double bed with wardrobes in the front left pannier. If there's any room remain...

Re: Loading top of rear rack

[ Mr or Mrs doodah, very similar setup to my heavy tourer. I have similar views on the handiness of the rack pack, which I've found over numerous trips to be worth using. A little heads up about the two buckles used to attach it to pannier tops-- after three trips,I noticed that one of them had cra...

Yes, very clean looking.
Though when I've used four panniers I haven't needed to put anything on the top of the rack. Here's mine, well no longer mine...

You failed to mention the copious saddlebag :-)

Re: Loading top of rear rack

5 .jpeg My preferred set up for a tour. Tent, poles, footprint, folding table and Helinox knock off chair in the rack pack with spares and tool pouch, ergo no wet gear fouling up contents in the panniers. Still allows room and easy access to put in food bought en route. Also have taken inserts out ...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

The Archies campsites don't seem to get included on a GPS export (possible enhanchment?) I believe this could be resulting from Archies owning the Intellectual Property. Archies sell their app. I have purchased Archies separately. When I have spotted a suitable Campsite I search it in Archies DB in...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

Hi Ian, Thanks for the reply and the link to mapout.app. I also have an iPad and this just might be the ticket, especially as iPad does not support Basecamp -why? Yes, I realise that ct shows campsites but one has to zoom in and 'search' for them. The beauty of using Archies is that the campsites ca...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

The biggest problems I've had with Garmins and USBs have been with the cable! This has never been fully explained but it does work better with official Garmin cables than some others. This only applies to data transfer rather than charging. It's been repeatedly reported on the Garmin support site. ...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

This is not a cycle travel question / problem, but after Googling the problem for answers, I cannot think of a better forum to help me other than Garmin - if I live that long! I send the gpx track from ct to google - fine. I then want to send the track to my device - as per screenshot below. Screens...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

I suspect the answer will be -"No". So here is the question..... Can Archies Campsite app be imported / overlaid into cycle.travel? "Why?" I hear you ask. The reason is that I make my route on ct and then export it as gpx to Basecamp where I have Archies imported. I then open the...

Re: Longer term cycle touring in Europe after 2020

Europe is a pretty big place and infection rates will vary from country to country and region to region just as they do now. So I think it will depend on where you are at the time and what the situation is in that area. You might get lucky and find yourself always in an area where infection rates a...

Re: Longer term cycle touring in Europe after 2020

Let us suppose we are given a 6 month travel of Europe after 1 Jan 2021 - visa or otherwise - what is the consensus on finding a campsite with ease, with facilities and that will accept cyclists given that CV19 could well rear its ugly head in winter? I realise there are implications of Brexit but i...

Re: Cycle Travel Question

Perhaps I have missed this - so apologies if it has been previously posted.

Looking at the elevation of a route on CT, it is now shaded orange - amber - red.

What do these indicate please? An increase in gradient?

Thank you
