    Who would you all recommend for a custom frame bag these days? I'd ideally like to support a small business owner but if anyone has any ideas please let me know :)

    Took a ride up to Dursley / North Nibley and stopped off to see the Tyndale monument. Super steep walk to the top, but as you can see, the views made it all worth it. Unfortunately the monument was closed due to covid. After a small break we rode into the woods on a random path and just got "lost". We managed to find a nice little spot with plenty of widowmakers, but luckily the wind was non-existent. Still a bit eerie. Wood was everywhere, which was great, as I only brought my wood stove! It was a lovely place to camp. We only heard one group of people the whole night, and it was some night MTB riders with their torches flashing through the trees randomly. Super quiet night with the occasional owl. Definitely plan on going back to camp higher up, as on the way out we saw so many amazing spots. Would recommend.






    sketchy eh?

    Went on a short one to the wetlands of Severn Way from Bristol. It was a quick 15 mile ride out through heavy rain, but by the time we arrived, the sun was beaming. Went north alongside the river until we crossed the Pill and reached the wetlands. There was some good mud to ride through that was made even softer by the local cows we kept passing. The guy riding with me wasn't very fond of cows, so we kept a quick pace.. until we hit the gates. There were so many gates. We lifted our bikes, fully loaded, at least 7 times, haha. Each little dirt path we'd planned to follow into the woods had been blocked by gates, so we just kept moving north. Eventually we found an open pasture that had an abandoned farm and no cow crap! Plenty of sheep crap though. We had our little wood burning stoves and they cooked up a few brews and dinner a treat. Hit the sack around 9 and probably only slept about 3 hours. Temp got down to about 4c, which was nice. It was a great test run. Going to go around Dursley in the middle of the week and do something similar. I don't have all the cool bag kit yet so had to rock panniers, and found it fine.

    I'm sure everyone knows this but @sacredhart is awesome. Tremendous packing job on a frame and other bits and great communication throughout.

    Also @AlexD is a great guy and is a pleasure doing business with.
