    Ride your bike. Stay in the trees. Plot routes near watering holes (AKA ‘shops’). Strap another bottle cage on to your bike/body. Sun cream.

    Amanda’s got hold of the classic Laplander for taming her used-to-be-under-now-is-over-growth.

    You put that in deliberately didn’t you!

    Those Bacho saws are ace, they are light enough to go in your pack and can tackle anything up to the size of small trees that have fallen across the trail. Together with a pair secateurs they are the business for sorting out overgrown trails.

    I read about the Knog Scout earlier in the week, seems like a good device, but from what I have read it only works with a bloody Apple bloody I-Phone! Or am I missing something.

    No, you’re not missing something Gary. It uses an apple air tag to do the tracking.
    With that in mind, does the price include the tag?

    “died in the wool northern soulboy”

    That bundle of wool is going to be pretty smelly when they find the corpse. Won’t be fit for much apart from making one of these: https://naturalendings.co.uk/eco-friendly-coffins/wool-coffins/

    I am excited about my SPD sandals, so please don’t tell me they’re terrible in the comments

    They’ve been pretty much the same since the 90s, so I’m sure they’ll be fine.

    Matthew Hornby – 3rd party devices can use the Find My network nowadays, so pretty sure the Knog
    Finder does that rather than having an airtag inside it

    Pretty sure those are what SPD sandals are what Harry Ingham has been wearing since they came out, Amanda. Everyone one in Tod will just think you got a job at his shop.

    I had a air of the SPD sandals many many years ago. I thought they were great and if they had a more covered toe area, I’d have used them offroad more.

    Why can’t hedgehogs move over & let other animals use hedges too? 🤔

    They’re really good, and good value, but they’re not that long so theres a limit to what you can tackle. If you can fit a longer saw in your riding pack then they’re not much heavier, quicker to use on small stuff, and you can deal with bigger trees (but they are of course more expensive). Theres a thread.

    Secateurs – for clearing branches get an anvil not bypass type.

    Lapland is miles better than any of the cheap ones I’ve tried.

    The Laplander saw is ace but get a brighter string or you will loose it at some point 🤦🏻‍♂️

    I have a pair of SD5 sandals I think they are brilliant, no socks, just paint your toe nails, it’s surprising how excited people get when I turn up for a group ride

    Those oil-slick Deathgrip collars have now become my most lusted-after pointless blingy accessory. They will match my Muc-Off valves and Uberbike stem bolts wonderfully!

    Who says you can’t buy class?

    KNOG SCOUT… Benji has passed me the knog scout. I will have a fiddle about this weekend, and find out how it works.

    I’ve finally braved a bike ride in the sandals. Aside from the comedy tan lines my feet are now sporting, I have no complaints! Really comfy, stiff enough to work great with XT pedals, and if I lift my toes up on a descent it airs my feet.

    I won my only ever mountain bike medal wearing SPD sandals. I came third (out of perhaps ten) at the inaugural UK singlespeed champs in 1995. I may have worn socks though, for a ‘no gravel between the toes’ effect…

    Wow… even with my maths, I realise that was 27 years ago… 😮
