First bikepacking trip of 2019! Happy to see everyone again.
When: Feb 23rd to 24th weekend.
Where: New Forest. Probably meeting at Brockenhurst Station, but this is TBC.
What: Mixture of singletrack, doubletrack, dirt. Gravel bikes are ok for this one!
Overnight: Wild Camping, location TBC (happy to hear recommendations)
Am I welcome: Yes, if you have a positive attitude and enough half-decent kit to come round
Mood: Open and supportive, stopping to chill often, making a grand old fire in the evening
Other Important Details:
I will post exact meeting and trains info in due course. Do not book trains yet, we only book for sure a week or so in advance to check the weather forecast is good. A weekend of rain ain't fun.
If you don’t have a tent you can probably share a tent/tarp with someone else, post in the thread. You will need your own sleeping bag and mat at a minimum.
You must be self-sufficient, so bring plenty of food, tools, tubes, and good attitude! We don’t ride fast at all, but you must be fit enough to make it round on a loaded bike. If you’ve never ever gone camping these trips might not be for you.
See previous trips here and here.
Watching with interest 👍
Pinned it on the calendar! Actually craving bikepacking trips, it's been too long.. Is this going to be MTB only or CX/Gravel friendly?
I think New Forest may be CX/Gravel friendly even at that time of year. Judging by posts like this.
Nevermind, I forgot I am in Belfast that weekend.
Thinking of adapting these two routes from Brother in the Wild 2018, opinions?
OK - updated the first post with all the info, routes above. Any questions post here! Ta
Am interested - would be riding on gravel bike
Great, gravel bike would be fine for this. Happy to have you along.
Either we went the wrong way or these routes weren’t as gravelly as advertised?
Tagging usual suspects, and who has expressed interest in the past, so I can do a list in a few days
Please let me know if you think you can do that dates, we can figure out specifics closer to the time

Thanks for the tag. I will ask for permission but I don't think it is likely I can get away that weekend.
Cool. I'm likely available. 29/ss again. Am sure that's fine.
Cool, understood. Come along perhaps to Wales or the Peaks if you can get the time off!

Cheers, not for this one I'm afraid but possibly Wales mk2.
I think I'm in for this one, thanks for the tag!
