    Thanks for your thoughts guys, seems doable.

    I should have a day where I'm free to take off and ride from Hampshire back to north London; fingers crossed for a south westerly - 50km into the wind before turning back and getting a gentle push all the way home would be ideal.

    Ideally looking for Tubus or other indestructible type.

    Thanks!

    This has been a year of very low miles so going to try to finish strongly.

    Going to purchase a bike rack (car mount) to help make this happen this year. Anyone else eyeing it up? Any tips from seasoned campaigners?

    Stopped in the middle of the road and yelled long enough and loud enough for someone in one of the houses to offer to call the police. I zipped home and did the same, woman on the call said police were on scene by the time I called.

    Numbers were well against a direct intervention.

    Sort of related (geographically at least), up near the Auld Triangle tonight 5 or 6 youths crowding round an older guy who cried out for help as I rode past.

    Take care out there folks.

    Did anyone else ride it in the end? Was a great ride.

    Wanted to let others know though that myself and friend were stopped by a very angry chap in a 4x4 just after crossing Limpsfield Road. He forced us to go off route, something to do with having people shooting further down the hill. We weren't in a position to argue the point, but wondered if anyone else had any bother?

    Nice! What's up with the front brake?

    Had a look this afternoon as I happened to be passing, the insulation on these is a layer on the inside, rather than held in baffles as with the Endura and most down jackets.

    For that reason I think the Endura might last longer, and also packs down to size of a fist. Still haven't decided though.
