I am hoping to do some bike packing nights out this year but really want to spend as little as possible. Has anyone got a one man tent or bivvy bag they would like to sell?
Not too bothered about weight but pack size is a consideration.
Let me know what you have gathering dust.
Vango Calder 500 tent with genuine Vango ground sheet footprint.
This is a quality Vango tent and is in excellent condition, only used once for 2 nights by myself and my wife.
Selling due to change in circumstances.
Cost over £200.
Now Sold thanks.
I bought this but never used it, it's just been sat in the bag under the stairs and is now surplus to requirements.
Too big to open up fully for photos in my back garden unfortunately, but you can read about it here - https://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/tents/p/Khyam-Tourer-400/777
If you're bike touring and planning on sleeping in a tent, how do you make sure your bike does not get stolen from the camp ground when you're asleep? I doubt you would be able to fit the bike inside the tent with you. :shy: This might be a silly question, but it's a thought that came to my mind..
YACF has one of these threads as a sticky. Hope this one works as well.
Soooooooo, today I've bought...
A Trekology Aluft UL80 mat and a Trekology Aluft 2.0 pillow and a Flexigear pump to inflate them with.
The mat and pillow are well known in camping circles and generally well thought of. I'll...
After my first bikepacking adventure over the summer, my friends and I are planning another one. But this time we will be camping. What's the best way to pack a tent? I've just bought a cheap one man tent, a yellowstone matterhorn (want to make sure i'm happy cycling and camping before...

Nigor Didis 2 Tent plus a Full Length Footprint
Ideal for cycle-camping.
After seeing a Dutch couple camping in Wales with one of these three years ago, I decided to get one. Having previously owned a Nigor Wickiup I knew the materials and manufacture was to the highest standard. Plus the tent...
for those of you who camp do you prefer poles that are under the flysheet or those that are above the flysheet and are mesh pole sleeves better than fabric ones for durability ie rubbing together or snagging just curious

Hi. I'm looking at a lighter tent for 3 to 7 night journeys away - and have seen one that has a hydrostatic head of 2000.
My current 1kg heavier tent has a hydrostatic head of 4000......
Can I go mad with some seam sealant and improve the waterproofing or is it more the overall material that...
.....don't be alarmed now..
It's just a rustley mat! Are all inflatable mats the same? First time I've used one, a Synmat expedition and the noise it makes when you move is astonishing. I've solved it by putting my microfibre towel betwixt it and the floor but really! Apparently it's not the...
I know nothing about it.
Also a three man one.
Hydrostatic head lower than many but I think some folk reckon that that is fine.
I know there are some fans of cheap...
I was active on here a good while ago and was in the process of collecting bits and pieces for a cycle tour when I became very ill and had to give up cycling. I had a brief foray back 2-3 years ago and was taken ill again. I've been discharged from the Dr and am finally on the mend, hopefully...
For the first time in years due to job changes and other circumstances, we are in a position to take off to France for about a month this summer. Looking forward to it as it has been years since we have been able to go away for more than 7 - 10 days at once. We will be in the car with the bikes...
Due to me doing this trip www.usacycle2018.com I have decided on a tent upgrade. Many of the US sites have gravel or even semi-indoor under shelters and free standing tent is vastly better.
Other requirements are green for stealth, light weight and decent quality.
This little beauty has...
Thought I'd show you how useful this tent is for cycle camping and touring. I've used this a few times now and I'm still amazed how it manages to fit two bikes in the porch area without them touching the side of the tent (by leaning them together).
Here's a few pics..
I'm looking at buying a new tent. I want a two person tent that I can at least sit up in.
Most tents of this size come in a 600 mm long pack. How can I carry this on the bike (touring bike with Ortleib panniers)? In the past I have carried the poles strapped to the top tube or had the tent...
