    Budget 1 man tent / Bivvy Bag

    Hi all 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. Thanks

    How to not get bike stolen when sleeping in tent?

    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..

    Tent recommendations for touring

    Looking for some tent recommendations please. What’s ideal for 3-4 day touring? It would be just me inside it so would I need just a 1 person tent or 2 persons for a little extra space?

    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...

    If there's a rustle in your tent now.....

    .....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...

    Light tent, freestanding, stealth colour?

    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...

    Laser Space 2 tent

    Hi 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..
