Save the date, we're going bikepacking again. More details soon.
Location TBC probably Oxfordshire, 1hr train out of London.
For what to expect please consult the archives.
@platypus do you know where you’ll be starting/finishing from so I can check trains please?
Hey. At the moment I am thinking of Tring Station which is on the line from London Marylebone.
Working Saturday… but will consider making an appearance out of the dark woods as you’re sitting down for dinner, or some time Sunday.
thanks thrasher for the offer to borrow/test ride your tent.
+1 for bikepacking here. very excited.
Very interested! Would be ok to join at starting point as I would probably be driving from the north?
Someone here offered to loan me a hammock and tarp setup to try.
Safe to assume that we'll be able to find a campsite with weight bearing trees?
bumping this thread, here we go.
weather is currently iffy. will wait a few more days then decide whether to do it or not.
the route is down below:
a nice mix of fast-rolling smooth tracks, bits of the ridgeway, rideable on most bikes, most fun on a short-travel or rigid MTB as usual.
start/finish at Tring Railway station probably at roughly 10:00 (whenever a train from London gets in)
@PedroPinto fine to drive there and meet us
@goosenoose Campsite with trees guaranteed
cancelling this. weather is looking rough and not many attendees. see you next time >>>>>
A shame that.
As it happens I couldn't make those dates but heres hoping i can do the next version.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
