    I guess I was in a bit of a rush and forgot to fill up my hydration pack. :( Lesson learned, definitely. Unfortunately, I also learned the hard way.

    Retrospectively, I should have taken both the Camelbak and three water bottles, yes. Just something I forgot to put on the bike - schoolboy error, and I learned from it. ;)

    Since I am neither giant, nor Canadian - I suspect I will!

    Agreed on the numbers! Definitely need a dedicated cycling computer. :(

    I took my Camelbak hydration system and NO water bottles - why? Because, I'm an idiot! :( I got heatstroke.

    Hi guys,

    I recently did a fully loaded (all bar a few things and the fourth "food" pannier) ride on my touring bike. It's been a while since I posted any pictures of it, so here it is. I've...

    Hi All,

    Derek Boocock on Talk Vietnam.

    Evening folks.

    I thought I'd share this with you all. My last post with regards to Derek and his journey doesn't appear to have garnered the attention that I believe it warrants.

    So, I thought...

    What an interesting discussion.

    I have my trekking bars set up so that the brakes are situated under the bottom grips at an angle.

    While this position is fine, I almost never (and perhaps I...

    Hi Lucky,

    I'm thinking early/mid March in terms of departure - it will all depend on what the weather is like here.

    I used to listen to music as I was trundling around town on the old MTB. Now, I don't really listen to it - I would, but I can't seem to find the right 'type' of music to listen to as I pedal along....

    You're right there, Fietsbob. I realised my mistake, but when I tried to edit the post, I couldn't see the text in the Editor. I only saw a blank white screen, and the "Reason for Editing" box.

    Bloody sprinklers!

    I had one go off on me as I was riding past... Luckily, the only thing that got wet were my panniers!

    Poor Dave! :(
