Will this pic make bike/bivving a bit more appealing?
The only thing I am nervous about now is the emergency stop and swerve parts of the Mod1, I am sure after a day on the big bike it will be fine though
Tarp – £20 from decathlon
Bivi bag £20 from army surplus
Foam roll mat (bulky, not as insulation as self inflating matresses but cheep and light) – £2.99
Sleeping bag – £££ but it’s summer, you won’t die in a tesco one, just take ronhills and an extra baselayer to sleep in
Everything else is just nice to have.Posted 4 years ago
I used and Alpkit tarp £50 Bivi bag £30 Airo mat £20Posted 4 years ago
bog standard summer sleeping mag £30, pegs and bungees from other camping stuff .Frame bag was made £75 which you do not really need!
Buy stuff from ebay which will do the job just as well for a third of the pricestumpy01Member
I thought your pic was going to be of Holly Willoughby and Kelly Brook clutching a double sleeping bag while doing the wiggly finger ‘come here’ thing…..
And as good as your pics are, they are never going to match the mental image I have just generated. So for that reason…….I’m Ooot!
Nice pics though and I like the way you have styled your tarp on a stealth version of an Imperial Star Destroyer….Posted 4 years ago
100 km loop in the Lakes with a bivvy after 35km and several beers it rained for around 9 hours but woke to a view @ 9.30am of this, it was great even though I forgot my pocket rocket and ate cold porridge for brekkie 🙁Posted 4 years ago

Was raining(torrential) for most of the evening hid in the pub till it closed then an hour of hike a bike in the dark was a bit of a lottery where I pitched as there were several streams running down the hill.5 mins to pitch was just shorts and merino top, waterproof boots so getting dry was not a big problem with the heat and wind just cursed a lot when I went to make a brew 🙁Posted 4 years ago
What ya missing mate?
Right let’s see what I have first.
Sleeping Bag – an Ok summer one
Bivi Sack – the liner type going around the sleeping bag
I’ve spotted a couple if things I’m going to go for so will at some point do it but really it’s a case of not bothering as there’s no hurry.Posted 4 years agoI_AcheMember

Yer a lucky man Rich.
Somehow, I can’t imagine it would be as much fun in Beacon Park.
Beacon Park would be a great place to do it. None of those annoying hills to have to get up and your only 5 mins from greggs so breakfast is easy to get. Perfect.Posted 4 years ago
