HISS Catalonia 2015

Travel and recovery insurance Hi guys, this may have been brought up before but thought it was worth a heads up. I've just recently returned from the Aragon HISS, which was fantastic, but I was punted off my bike by a deer resulting in a broken ankle and broken footrest. Fortunately my travel ins a...

Re: Recommend a stove

... Be aware !!!!!! I bought one of these cheapie stoves and thought I had won a watch , it seemed to work every bit as well as the expensive branded proven ones. It did for the first season,, then on the second season I took it out the store to check it over and light it up before a camping trip. ...

Re: Recommend a stove

I took a chance on one of these: http://img.dxcdn.com/productimages/sku_90761_1.jpg http://www.dx.com/p/brs-8-multi-functional-oil-gas-stove-90761#.VVJQTo5Viko I've used it with both gas and petrol. It's more controllable on a low heat with gas, but obviously not as good when it's cold. With petrol ...

I'm still watching too. Quite enjoying it, and I'm a miserable git.

HISS Catalonia 2015

Thanks Simon. Sounds like it should be fine. If it's a "road" of any description it should be passable for me. If there's 18" steps I hope everyone's feeling strong ;-)

Ta, Ard
Another bike isn't an option for many reasons and it seems I do like to make life difficult for myself. I don't want it to be too easy now ;-)

HISS Catalonia 2015

I've got this niggle in my head that says I should get a better skid plate before September as the stock one isn't brilliant (08 GSA). Can Simon, or anyone that's been before, share any thoughts on if this would be wise or if I'm worrying over nothing (they're not cheap). Can I expect rock steps or ...

Ultimate Addons iphone Charger - Have you had issues with one?

I used to have one for my iPhone 4. Worked perfectly for the couple of years I used it, would even charge whilst streaming music via BT, running TomTom and recording where I've been. Got a different setup now with IPhone 5 but for different reasons. Sounds daft but mine had a small rubber push butto...

Three Peaks Challenge?

I probably think I'm fitter than I am. Maybe the 3 day version would be better to start with, then I could do the 24hr version if it went well. I think I could cope with the long hours in the seat (have before, but not after climbing three peaks!) but I don't want to kill myself :-/ Appreciate the r...
