Kill what you love.

Before we fall headlong down this particular rabbit hole, I just want to make it clear that I have no answers, I only have questions. However, they’re questions that I believe we should all ask of ourselves and if we’re honest and truthful, then perhaps the answers and solutions will readily present themselves. Once upon […]

SOTO Wind Master stove.

Rightly or wrongly, I kind of assume that other people assume that I only ever use meths stoves. The real truth is, I’ll happily burn any kind of fuel in my continual quest for another brew. I feel there’s a time and a place for every type of stove and conditions combined with your own […]

The Titan Ground Anchor.

To most upright members of society, a tent peg will receive less thought than what they’re having for their dinner. Conversely, to the ardent bikepacker, the seemingly humble tent peg is a source of untold fascination.

Welsh Ride Thing 2021.

Those of you that are long suffering, will know that entries for the WRT traditionally open on Feb 1st. That’s not going to happen this year because in truth, none of us have even the faintest idea of what they next few months has in store. We could simply carry on regardless, cross our fingers […]

22,000 Miles begins with a story that many parents will recognise but for most, the story would stop there. Not so for Rich Seipp and more importantly, his son Tom. For Tom, that story was the spark that set his world ablaze and would send the pair of them on a roller coaster ride culminating […]

Trekmates Storm Bivi … first look.

Perhaps before we begin, I should come clean and say that, I’m not the greatest fan of hooped bivvies. However, I should also clarify that statement by saying, my preferences are purely personal and many people either like using a hooped bivvy bag or are at least drawn to the concept and idea of a […]

The 2020 BB200 – Covid edition.

It’s been a strange year for cycling events and everything else really. Regardless of your own personal views about the situation, as an ‘organiser’ you need to possess a clear view of the bigger and longer lasting picture … and that means towing the line and making sure that you’re seen to be doing the […]

Book Club … Nordic Cycle.

Whether you’re a fan of the term ‘Bucket List’ or not (and by the way, I’m not), you can’t deny that most bikepackers will have one. It may not be a physical list lovingly typed up or even one scrawled hurriedly on a scrap of paper. It might only exist in the back of your […]
