    @cjr that's a good idea with the food pouch. I already have a pair of restrap ones under the aero pads, but am thinking of a solution for the bulky items you tend to pick up mid-ride at petrol stations etc. In my mind its more horizontally mounted with an opening nearest the rider.

    @Kurai yeah I think it may require sewing... i dont have the equipment or skills but have a friend who could help if i gave a detailed blueprint. Here's the best pic I have immediately to hand of the space available between the bars.

    Actually that's incredibly helpful - I've tried plenty of search terms, but not "elastic netting", and that's thrown up some useful links. Will try and bodge something out of this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07CSPDTR6/

    I'd like to knock together some sort of "snack hammock" to make use of the space between my aerobars and to have food within easy reach. Anyone aware of anything like this out there?

    I'd have thought 35s will be adequate tbh. But it'll be interesting to hear from those who have actually ridden the route, which I have not.

    The Whyte is staying home. I'm going with wide tyres and flat bars plus aeros on an Orange RX9, which I recently picked up in ebay. What about you?

    Personally no. Maybe an hour or two at either end of the day, but (a) I'll need the sleep and (b) it's gonna be such an incredible landscape I want to see as much of it as possible.

    I'm flying out to Madrid from Bristol. Me and a mate will be driving back up to Madrid for a flight on the Sunday if that is any good for you @hippy - can easily bung another bike in the back.

    I've used them in Seville and Nashville, and in both cases it has been excellent. In a situation where I don't want to hail a cab or uber, but there are no bikes available, using an e-scooter has been a great way to make a journey in under 10 mins that would otherwise take 45 on foot.

    It's a bit confusing in some places whether the local laws are to user roads, pavements, or bike lanes, but that's sorted easy enough with a quick google.

    Wouldn't ever buy one myself, but when visiting a different city I've found it a great and cheap way to nip around.
