    Has anyone got a GPX of the Caledonian Way - can't seem to get it from the OS maps website here:

    Do you need an account to access? I'm just getting an error message

    I stayed with an eccentric (and bike mad) guy in Oban from Warmshowers when I was last there, I still have his number and could put you in touch?

    Great to spend the day walking around Nuremberg with the peace of mind that your bike is relatively securely locked 😬

    I bought a Hiplok original round-the-waist type chain lock after seeing @Gustav using one in France when we crossed paths. Tend to dump it at the bottom of a pannier rather than wear it around my waist but not really sure why as you don't really notice it.

    Really useful for peace of mind when in grocery stores etc, and as I'm usually touring alone it's been an unfortunate necessity. Could probably get by without one but would involve being quite cheeky and asking to bring your bike in with you wherever you went. Extra weight not usually an issue for me as most of my touring is longer distance so I'm carrying loads of unnecessary weight anway

    These have gone for £100-150 on here in the past, I think you are still a fair bit over on price tbh

    £180 complete? Mad bargain

    Ah cool, thanks. Yeah I was looking at how to dismantle mine and couldn't see an obvious screw holding it together :|

    Before I end up buying a completely new light, does anyone have a B&M Secula (seat post/seat stay fitting) that they would be interested in swapping for my B&M Secula (mudguard fitting)?

    Or does anyone know if you can buy the seat post/stay fitting part separately to fit? Or are the lights substantially different enough for that not to be possible?

    Anyone know which Wald basket is the best to fit to a Specialized Pizza Rack?

    Heading off later this week for a week in Wales. Getting the train to Shrewsbury and heading out towards the Pembrokeshire coast and around then back through the Brecons towards Hereford. There my pal is heading back to Manchester and I'm going to head to Bristol/the Mendips to see some other friends before heading back.

    Playing around with a route and have started with this. Tried to include as much off-road parts as possible, including some parts where it might not be the most direct route. This is all subject to change.

    This is the route so far:

    If anyone has any advice or things to see or avoid in this area then please let me know. Also does anyone know if the bothies are back open yet? The MBA website seems to suggest avoiding using them at the moment but it seems advisory. Are they likely to be locked?
