  • In the end I have picked up a friend who is riding 28s, panniers, etc. I suspect they will not be able to handle the majority of the off road bits, especially as it looks like it's going to rain all week, so I'm drawing up alternative routes just in case. Are the NCNs round suffolk coast OK or sort of naff? (I'm thinking of those long drags of pavement next to screaming trunk roads that I sometimes run into)

    Was going to largely keep the structure intact with the same wild camping spot at minsmere and starting at woodbridge / ending at lowestoft

    There's nothing like that. All the back roads around there are fairly quiet tbh

  • Escaped a family holiday for one night, rode from the South Devon coast into south Dartmoor on the Redlake Tramway . Got a pinch flat and was tired so didn't make it to the end of the tramway at Red Lake, but pushed the bike a few hundred metres to the summit of Three Barrows Hill and bivied there. Perfect conditions, could see jubilee beacons in the South Hams, the lights of Plymouth and the Eddystone Lighthouse shining clear on the southern horizon. A pony and a very small foal came to say hello.

    Next morning pushed / dropped / wrangled the bike west down to the Erme valley then rode off the moor on the track there, breakfast in Ivybridge then back to the family in time to go for a massive pub lunch in Salcombe. 10/10 would microadventure again.
