    Looks awesome better than my view at moment from hospital window


    Feeling very claustrophobic, cooped up in here but my wife takes priority at the moment and I know I’ll get out again some time soon , hopefully new year


    Have you seen this?

    Maybe pick something to help you plan for the future?


    There is a long thread here somewhere with tons of great photies and reports. Well worth searching out or someone posting a link.

    Went to the Peak District last weekend

    My strava record of it here (which includes quite a few pictures)

    It was a short ride as my mate was completely killed by the climbing and his lack of form. But it was excellent and I’m looking forward to going back


    What we do is not really what most of you think as bikepacking but it will do for me. This is our outfit

    Cheers guys benp1 can’t seem to view your pics in Strava


    Not bike packing in the sense of barbags and bivvys, but here are some pics from a wee overnighter i did earlier this year.
    Left straight from work, picked some steak and tomatoes up from the shop then headed out to Dartmoor for the night. Up early the next morning- did some more trails and then back at the office by 9!

    Downhill hike-a-bike! This drop has been ridden but the landing’s so soft he sank and couldn’t pedal away 😆

    None of those are from my part of the world (Yorkshire Dales)!


    Apologies Whitestone for any offence to your Yorkshire heritage 😀
    My Swedish grandmother was raised in your neck of the woods and always raves about its beauty


    Wash your mouth out sir! I’m a Lancastrian born and bred though the bit of Lancashire I grew up in is now part of Cumbria. Just happen to live in the Darklands now and have to put up with the tykes bragging about their inferiority complexes 😆

    Inspirational thread! More like this please 😀

    Not sure if I’m more jealous at the time some of you have available to ride, or the locations you find yourselves in! Great thread, some fantastic photos.


    This is cheering me up no end please keep them coming guys.
    I’ve just decided also to keep my new Cannondale Habit for next year for the meantime I’m going to use my Cannondale CAADX for my foray into bike packing. While my wife recovers will give me time to gather up some gear.
    Xmas list for the kids beckons for some gear!!

    How did the Tyvek work for a bivvy?


    How did the Tyvek work for a bivvy?

    Not brilliant to be honest. It was more of an experiment (the material’s cheap enough that you can try things out), I’d seen Rich’s similar setups using silnylon so thought I’d give it a go.

    The material tears easily so you can’t put holes into it to attach lines. I just had lines at each corner: I scrunched up some of the material at the corner and used a sheet bend to attach the line around that. Tyvek’s reasonably waterproof so you aren’t going to get wet.

    That particular setup is OK if you need a low profile because it’s windy for example but there’s obviously only as much headroom as the diameter of your wheels.


    Top one looks like Lochan nan Earba near Ardverikie. Middle one could be anywhere! Bottom one looks like the climb up from Sadgill in Longsleddale.

    You’re good you Bob … obviously, the middle one’s Wales 😉

    Marginally less adventurous, the Chilterns last winter.

    Frame bag – gelert tent
    Bars – sleeping bag and mat
    Saddle bag – change of clothes + cooking kit
    Camelback – water + food + stuff

    I am really liking the pics guys so keep them coming. At present I’m sitting with two virtually new Cannondales. I’m unsure whether to sell both for a Bombtrack Hook Ext like this.

    Or should I just build up a quality set of 650b wheels for my CAADX
