Re: Norwich to Lowestoft through The Broads

Road access to the broads is non existent? What are you on about????? :D :D :D They're all right near roads pretty much! the a149 at rollesby goes straight between 2 of them, and has a car park. You can park right by one at Filby bridge at martham, horsey hickling and barton turf there are roads rig...

get oruxmaps if you have android then get these maps: http://www.openfietsmap.nl/downloads/bnl_full and you'll have the best chance possible of navigating the horrible 2 digit system used in southern holland. or you would be better off going to Germany where they use proper signs telling you which w...

Re: Norwich to Lowestoft through The Broads

Although having just read the title, please bear in mind that the routes mentioned will take you nowhere near the proper broads. To do that you would want to go from norwich up to wroxham, then maybe across through ludham and on to rollesby or maybe hickling. this isn't really the best way to lowest...

Re: Norwich to Lowestoft through The Broads

Norwich - Surlingham - Claxton - Chedgrave - Loddon -Hales - Raveningham - Gillingham - Beccles - Worlingham - Barnby - Mutford - Carlton Colville - Lowestoft. No main roads and cycle track from Carlton \\colville to the middle of Lowestoft. Its a great ride and one we do often - if sometimes in pa...

Re: Looking For Advice For Mosel/Rhein Tour

I'm still amazed at the amount of designated cycle routes (even between villages) that the Germans have. I love my bike and am lucky enough to live in a nice part od Scotland (the East Neuk of Fife) but you share A and B class roads with everyone and their gran when you go out After Koblenz i came ...

Re: Arrangements for Trangia fuel bottle on flights

week before last i went to germany and had similar thoughts

i didn't take any fuel (you can't on a plane) or a bottle

i bought a bottle of brennspiritus and decanted it into an empty 300ml water bottle


i don't see why you wouldn't be able to take your trangia bottle in hold luggage though

Re: Frankfurt to Hook Of Holland in the next couple of weeks

Bear in mind that Frankfurt city is several miles east of the airport ie the wrong direction! I would consider looking at Mainz area for that first night. There isn't a huge number of camp sites on the Rhein itself, wild camping might be more possible north of Duisburg. Can't tell you if they will ...
