Does your tarp fall over at the slightest hint of a breeze? Do you wonder how other people manage to ride loaded bikes that don’t look like every bag attached is about to explode? Have you ever wondered what it’s like to sleep in a hammock? Would you like to spend a night out with some like minded souls, have a craic and maybe pick a few bikepacking related tips up?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then you might want to come along to the Bear Bones Summer Camp on the weekend of July 20th/21st. It’s an informal weekend where hopefully people can share their experience and pass on / receive tips and advice on all things bikepacky. Full details aren’t finalised just yet but I can say that it’ll be held in sunniest mid Wales, will involve a ride/night out, is completely free and is open to everyone no matter how experienced/inexperienced they may be. For anyone who likes the thought of bikepacking but hasn’t yet dipped a toe and caught the bug, there’ll be a (limited) amount of kit available for you to borrow … so don’t let ‘not having the gear’ put you off coming.

More details as soon as they’re sorted out.

  2. You'll be very welcome (your good lady too if she likes). There'll be updates here and over on the fotum.

Book Club … Gravel Rides Scotland.

Whether you think ‘Gravel’ is (a) the new cycling religion, (b) an exercise in good marketing or (c) simply a way of making roadies feel better about themselves, matters not because no one can deny that gravel is now at the forefront of cycling and appears more popular today than it was last week … […]

BB200 – when the mud settles.

Despite my best efforts, I’m sat here writing this surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of bacon butties. Why do I smell of grilled pork products? Because yesterday was the second edition of the 2021 BB200 / 300 and it’s my job to feed all those returning. Each October since 2011, a group of riders have […]
