Re: GPS routes for France en Velo St Malo-Nice route

I use this to generate routes as gpx. Very useful app and quite intuitive. One can also add "points of interest" such as accommodation, campsites, cafes etc. The routes can also be saved in a various other formats other than gpx.

Re: ADFC Cycling Maps

The link from the ADFC website only has a PNG or similar, but could use Print to File on your printer options to turn it in to a PDF. Stanford's Travel Bookshop in Covent Garden have them. They have a webshop, but it may take some trawling - they have over 450 cycling maps for Germany listed. Thank...

ADFC Cycling Maps

Does anyone know of a source in the UK? I'm also endeavouring to find the single sheet overview(Ubersicht) as a PDF, without much success.

Thanks

Re: Getting your bike resprayed

Another consideration is that if you make your frame too shiny it is more attractive to potential "tea leaves". My 26" wheel Orbit Expedition is at the moment a wonderful shade of blue interspersed with grey primer, deliberately to reduce it's appeal. Or at least that's my excuse. :ro...

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

Thanks for the update. More experiences, anyone? Jonathan Jonathan, I ordered a few bits and pieces from Germany on the 2nd January, not cycling related but I would think the order would have been subject to the same protocols. The orders value was £40:00 and the VAT was paid at source to the Germa...

Re: Cycling Across France

I find that part of the enjoyment with regard to "long distance" cycle travel is the planning element. Years ago it was perusing maps and guidebooks, if they could be found. Lately the interweb is a phenomenal resource especially so with regard to cycling in France. I especially like the f...

Re: mtb to touring conversion

There is an interesting section in Adventure Cycle-Touring Handbook: Worldwide Cycling Route & Planning Guide ( Stephen Lord ) Concerning the "conversion" of a steel mountain bike to use as a tourer. I don't have my copy to hand at the moment so can't provide ISBN. But have a search on...

Sorry for the double post yet again I was endeavouring to correct a typo. I am starting to think it's an age thing.

Re: lockdown - anyone been arrested yet?

Went to the local COOP last week for some essentials and their were a group of yoofs having there names and addresses taken by the local plod. One saving grace I suppose, is that they were all on bicycles. By all accounts, a local builder was charged with assault for battering another yoof in said s...
