    Falzarego is great - barely worth saying but the Giau has to be done.

    I did 6 days there and rode on a standard double with 27 on the back. Very, very foolish bit of machismo. Compact is absolutely essential. I'd go back any time. Traffic was not bad in June when we went. Although the big, famous things like the Stelvio were busy. There are lots of small roads to explore with almost no traffic. We did one climb - not even given a name other than the road number - and despite qualifying for H.C. status there wasn't a single car all the way up.

    We're both faster than Laurens ten Dam, Tom. I'm expecting phone calls from team managers any minute...

    No maps. But it's very easy to get the OS maps free and they're excellent - happy to explain how that's done!

    Hello,

    Edge 800 with charger, one mount with plenty of the original bands of varying lengths, all the instructions etc. Everything apart from the Garmin is still in its original wrapping. I've used it a fair bit, but it's never been dropped or abused and it works flawlessly, picks up satellites quickly.

    Collection or delivery only at the moment. I'm in Blackheath.
    They tend to go for £150 to £160 on eBay. So how about £135?

    Thanks so much for organising Howie. Really great to finally ride a proper grand tour. Looking forward to next year. Maybe it could include the horrors of Col de la Point, now if we can find a section of pavé nearby...

    Chapeau dude!

    I requested a skid in Bromley this evening from a chap in a forum cap, on a pink bike. I was a bit sheepish as I was in full roadie mode...

    Excellent report Smallfurry! Sounds like great fun. Strong average speed with the distance and altitude too. Hatdoff
