  • Last bikepacking trip of the year.

    It will be a repeat of this excellent route, if I do say so myself.

    Start: Woodbridge train station
    Finish: Lowestoft train station
    Terrain: doubletrack, sandy paths, all doable on a cross bike upwards
    Overnight: wild camp
    Vibes: yes

    Please note, this is a weather-dependent event. Register your interest now and we will decide whether to proceed roughly 5 days in advance when the weather forecast is up.

    Route (will change the last bit slightly in due course):

  • ere we go:
    @yakut @TvH @spotter @Po
    @Cloak/Dagger @cgg @amey @edscoble
    whoever else, new friends welcome always

  • Ahh I just bought tickets to Yorkshire! If the weekend changes let me know

  • can't make it:( Will be in Paris that weekend.
    Great route this one

  • Ah, will be in Edinburgh that weekend :-(

    Keen if it gets pushed back one week. And looking at the profile I could get away with a fixed gear!

  • Yaaassss. Following weekend would be preferable but I can do either.

  • I'm in France then!

  • ok, looks like I picked the wrong time
    how is everyone fixed for 23rd/24th nov weekend? (two weeks after original date)

  • That would be a-ok

  • That works for me

  • I was planning on riding an audax actually starting from Lowestoft on the 24th and riding there overnight. We might see each other :-)

  • I'm interested, can I join? Dependant on a ton of things, but would be nice to meet some of you.

  • Woah! Wicked! I Am doing a thing in Devon the original weekend, combining riding, camping and other country pursuits.

    So suddenly I’m free for this if it’s moving.

    Have you got a decent secluded place to stop earmarked, @platypus?

  • No can do unfortunately.

  • I have zero plans for November, so any date is fine for me.

  • There's a BMX track in Rendlesham forest, just in case you fancied a little detour. Location shown below.

    There are also MTB routes in Tunstall Forest, but I've not been on them. They are quite famous locally

  • Nice! We found one last year too, don't think it was Rendlesham forest.

  • that one that you found looks a bit better than the one in Rendlesham forest. This is it here - https://www.pinkbike.com/video/372983/

  • About 3 miles in land from Orford? I found that once when up there celebrating the other half’s 40th.

  • OK, date has been changed! y'all better come now (if the weather is half decent)

    @Skülly, affirmative, have a nice spot not too far from minsmere
    @ough would be lovely to have you along! this event is tandem-suitable too if you're on the longbike

    Here's the album from last time, thanks for the reminder yakut - https://imgur.com/a/4jjYCtn

  • Cool, thanks! Stoker won't be in the country, so no tandem on the BMX track this time

  • Checked photo location data, it's Tunstall Forest apparently

  • Much better date for me thank you! Will need a warmer sleeping bag by then though

  • For the Nth time forum bikepacking clashes with P&L shop gravel rides. My choice has been with overnighters so far

  • Thankfully, forum bikepacking never clashes with the really important rides ;-)
