I hired a small bike in Athens and then rode over and around the Peloponnesus region for a week. Let me know if you’ll be visiting Athens and I’ll find the details.
(They did do other bikes than the small 125 I rented)

Re: Brenhden's TET

Thanks all, Bob, my bike does my daily 60 mile motorway round trip to the office on those tyres so I don't fancy any more agressive than 50/50. Also those Barkbuster Storms you recommend are brilliant. I'm sure my throttle side controls and the bones in my hand would both have been broken without th...

Re: Brenhden's TET

<snip> I found a tick on my ankle and I made a little tick remover from a loyalty card and used to totally fail to sort the tick out. I set off around 07:00 with its head still stuck in me. <snip> You need to get that sorted asap - like, very urgently!!!!!! Yeah, my other half cut it out the next d...

Re: Hi all!

Welcome aboard from Sunny Gloucestershire.

Any idea what bike you are upgrading to? What sort of electrical problems have you had?

Re: Brenhden's TET

29/06/19 Lovely lazy morning packing up and heading off. Donated my picnic table to the people next door, much to the disappointment of everyone else. Weighed the bike down with all my kit and zoomed off home. And cleaned and repaired my bike. 38 Saved me.jpg 39 Lost bolt.jpg 40 Soapy.jpg New kit re...

Re: Brenhden's TET

I rode out of town and next was St Day where I stopped for packed lunch and found some wild strawberries. The trails were great here especially Unity Wood. I negotiated a fallen tree and hopped over another. 30 Fallen tree.jpg Fallen tree I ended up at the coast in Porthtowan as it winds out of town...

Re: Brenhden's TET

Next I entered Levand Mines which was lush and perfect for photos. 28 Tin mines.jpg 29 Door.jpg From there it was more road and high winds and I stopped in St Ives for a cuppa and to be shot blasted by the sand from the beach! 34 St Ives.jpg 11:00 I rode out of town and next was St Day where I stopp...

Re: Brenhden's TET

Whilst dressing I found a tick on my ankle and I made a little tick remover from a loyalty card and used it to...

Re: Brenhden's TET

The trails were dry and easy and all was well, I stopped at Praa sands for a quick swim and the ‘pleasure’ of paying £4:40 for 275ml of alcohol free lager! 22 Sea.jpg And carried on to Mont St Michael: 24 Mont.jpg An then Penzance Tesco for fuel and supplies. I called it a day and turned back for ca...

Re: Brenhden's TET

Next was mount Wellington which I went the wrong way and had to negotiate an insane slag cliff like trail that would have been flipping hard work in hiking boots… 19 top of cliff.jpg The way I should have gone 20 should.jpg The way I went. 21 did.jpg It’s a miracle I didn’t wreck the bike on this.
