- 2013 bivi a month challenge
Not that I’m usually one for new years resolutions but I’ve set myself this challenge. is anyone else considering such madness?
Will be starting tomorrow night with a snowy bivi. Most likely around derwent edge.
I may well resurrect the ‘sick as a dog do show me your bikepackimg/bivi kit’ thread when I’m back in front of the wood burner on Friday!Posted 5 years agojamesoSubscriber
‘signed up’ on bearbones – now have a very cold one tonight or wet and muddy at the weekend as options.. looks like I’ll be a bit tired in a meeting on friday then ) More of a long night ride with campsite food and a few hrs rest if I’m going to be in in time.
Good motive to get some more miles in.Posted 5 years agoBlackhoundSubscriber
As per flatfishy’s link 4 of us did it last year and already got one in for 2013. Running total is actually 14.
Go for it. Does not have to be some 150 miles each day epic. Go after work on a Friday and be home for lunchtime on Saturday if it suits. Go somewhere different.Posted 5 years ago
Flatfish. Thanks for the link I hadnt seen that forum before! Like it! Had been on bike and bivi, which seems to be down currently
A basic question though, how do I register on there? I think I must be doing really bad man-looking. But in the iPhone I couldn’t see a link to register. Only log in…Posted 5 years agomarkgravoMember
Have a look at this post on there about registering.Posted 5 years ago
An just back from last nights outing.
Got the train to bamford rode out round ladybower then up the moscar/grindle clough path to bivi near hurking stones. It was pretty windy but I’d kicked out a space under the tarp and built up a small snow wall on the windy side and also the bottom of the tarp too. So it was nice a sheltered, had a good nights sleep. Must have been pretty chilly over night as my water bottle froze completely solid. Had to melt snow for my morning brew.
Came home via a mates house in north Sheffield. Got quite sidetracked by his open fire and some cups of tea. Great fun!Posted 5 years ago
I managed, by the skin of my teeth, to get out in February. On thursday night suddenly realised that it was march the next day.
Headed out to the ox stones. I usually like to plan a bit so felt quite strange to be suddenly there.Posted 5 years ago
Cloudier than it had been and surprisingly mild. Felt like spring is on the way!
