Book Club … 22000 Miles.

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 […]

New and revised Monkii and Gorilla stuff.

No matter what bikepacking means to you, I’m fairly sure that if someone asked you to explain it to them, you’d be likely to include the word ‘luggage’ within the first few sentences. Even if you didn’t use the word directly, you probably would explain quite graphically and no doubt with the use of waving […]

The Water-to-Go Active Filter.

“I’ve drunk water straight from streams for over thirty years”. Yeah, me too but there were those two times when my chosen water source perhaps wasn’t quite as clean as I’d thought. The aftermath left me in perpetual motion between the bathroom and the bedroom for a full seventy two hours … whatever your imagination […]

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.

The 2020 BB200 – Covid edition.

It’s been a strange year for cycling events and everything else really.

DD Magic carpet.

Contrary to the beliefs of some, I once had a proper job, albeit one that involved me paying the wages. Above the door of that establishment was a sign that read ‘Speed is just a question of money. How fast do you wanna go?’ You’re probably quite rightly wondering what that’s got to do with […]

Wildcamping – fuelling the fire.

Once upon a time, in a land not too far away, the verb ‘wildcamp’ didn’t really exist. You may now be saying “but I wildcamped ten, twenty or even thirty years ago ” and for many of us, that is true but for most who did, that act was rarely the goal or prime objective. […]

New Bike Products Sandro Bags – something a little different.

Bikepacking luggage comes in many guises but the Sandro bag from NBP is something quite unique. It may look odd but perhaps looks aren’t everything? Eric Robinson was intrigued enough to lay his money down and find out for himself and he’s been good enough to share his thoughts … over to you Eric. I […]

Henty Enduro pack … First look.

Like many of you, I very rarely employ a rucksack or backpack and usually prefer to attach my worldly possessions to my bike. Generally, it’s a tactic that works well, however I’m not blinkered enough to deny that there are certain circumstances when transferring some stuff from the bike and into a pack is the […]
