That would be great .... you don't have to ask ... your always welcome ... your part of it ...

Should the title be changed to "LEJOG for wimps - the return" or "JOGLE for wimps - the comeback"? :)

I have a bikepacking tent even smaller than Nick’s. Who even knew that was possible.
I like Wimps-The comeback.
I will work on Cally, I’ve got a spare bike she can use

Just a quick butting in from me.

Wimps?
Are you less wimpy now for a JOGLE?
Find some good climbs and a challenging route or two. :wink:

For instance, instead of taking Rob's Passage, go up Bickleigh Hill and over the Cadbury Hills to Crediton ......... and/or the north coast of Devon and Cornwall.

30 minutes up - 3 minutes down usually. :(
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.
