Re: Exeter Trial

Well, it's not going to happen for me this year after all... Went out in the Dellow the day before yesterday and the big-end on No 3 cylinder cried enough. The owner fitted his spare engine, and we went out today for a final shakedown...and the rear axle failed. Ironically, the weather is set dry a...

I would reccomend Almeria province in Southern Spain, was there until a few days ago and the temperature is in the high teens with blue skies. You can ride there all the year round but its too hot for me July and August.
Touring, or do you base in one place and radiate outwards?

Re: OS Mapping question

Tablet .. good idea!! .. with an app? Yep, cheap android tablet and you are away. There are numerous Android apps about that will almost certainly do what you want. The best is still Viewranger in my opinion, but their maps are not cheap. I am less than keen on the later versions, with a "social me...

Winter Sun

Feeling the Winter Blues this year after what seems like a really early start to the Winter, back in October! So, where are some good places to go for a spot of sunshine* and bike riding?

Re: OS Mapping question

My understanding was that the green dots ( not Diamonds) are UCR's or Unclassified County Roads. Also sometimes called ORPA's "Other Routes with Public Access". Certainly round where I live they seem to be what are or were public roads which have been allowed to ' go back to nature' basically eithe...
