Once upon a time, as a young man in my twenties, I did a fair bit of bicycle touring. I had a nice bike, well fitted to me, and a good quality saddle that my backside got on with well.
Then, life got in the way, and although I rode a fair distance every week on commuting and leisure rides, I...
Does anyone know of some good videos of people on unsupported bike tours. Beautiful Daughter loves riding with me on short tours and can't get enough of videos of people making cycle tours. So far we have watched videos by:
All of which move quickly...
With a ridge of high pressure moving in over the bottom half of the UK, the associated weather window offered the chance of a ‘snap’ tour. I’ve been keen to try something which may or may not come off; the clue’s in the title.
A while ago I picked up one of the Pashley Mailstars that...
Wish I'd been aware of this gov.uk "Military ranges firing notices" page when I had to re-route around the Lulworth area whilst on a tour a few years ago, not least because of the miles it added!
Anyone else had more 'interesting' experiences when encountering these areas?
I'm about to purchase new tyres for a winter tour in India. The tyres must last for at least 6,000 miles and offer good puncture protection and some off-road traction. At the moment I'm considering Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 700 x 40mm, the only other contender is Continental's Travel contact...
I quite enjoyed watching this one, touring around the UK with the help of a train or two.
Any suggestions? Somewhere to clock up a few thousand miles over winter with the possibility of some wild camping. My budget isn't huge but please feel free to include any destination so we can share info. Thanks :smile:
Hello guys, as per title, I've had the mad idea of getting into cycling with the aim of doing some light touring next year.
I hope you guys can help me tackle this challenge and give me some good advice on the training aspect.
So, my current situation in short:
- haven't been on a bike for...
I have a couple and would be great to connect with the other CC massive who have such accounts
General one for my trips. In parallel with CGOAB and I only post when out touring https://www.instagram.com/the_cycle_tourist/

Frame & forks.
48cm to suit 26" wheels.
It does come with a Spa seatpost clamp which I forgot to put in the photo.
It's just over a year old with about 2500 miles on it.
It is looking a little scruffy to be honest. The biggest eyesore being under the chainstays where I had a Pletscher twin...
I've managed to get a touring bike and hoping to find out a little more about it. It's in decent condition, not sure how old it might be. Simplex gear levers, Shimano deraileurs, 21 speed. Has Dia Compe brake levers and hoods.
No head badge or stickers on the frame, any ideas? It's not...
Not the sort of verbage one sees together often. I am working on a deal to get a Schwinn Passage Frame from a fellow in Northern Illinois. Travel, a meeting at a truck stop on an interstate highway,( in a small town with 4 intercontinental Amtrak trains a day)((side trip)) ) and the maximum of...
Hi, Im after some good value for money touring tyres for the mountain bike. I currently have the original 26x2 giant tyres on but me and a mate are cycling 45 miles up to his caravan in Alston and then back the following day.

Can anyone recommend some cycling blogs or online articles which are well written and engaging? I know a few but I'd like to have a broader range for purposes of propaganda on my boys. ("I've got a couple of interesting texts for you to practice English..." et c)
Online is preferred as even if...
I ask purely because I'm thinking of organising a saunter from Manchester to Amsterdam via the Hull-Rotterdam ferry with a some mates... once we're out of Greater Manchester it's a flat 160 miles split 60/40 by an overnight on the ferry, a night or two in the 'Dam & then back... it's not a...
A few years ago, it seemed as though Rohloff speedhubs would be everywhere but they seem to be still a niche gear choice. But I still want a steel Rohloff-equipped on and off-road touring / bikepacking bike, that I can also use for commuting, including in our cold and icy winters here in...
Whsilt I am a big fan of my Garmin (Edge 1030) that I will be using for LEJOG next month, it does require anal levels of planning (which I am fine with) and if you have to divert for any reason (accommodation/mechnical etc) can be a fiddle. So I like to have maps on my bar bag, of decent detail...
So here's the thing!
I have a week off, its a sunny easter, I fancy a 3 day tour!.
I live in North Wales, so am thinking England for a change.
A) I have toured a few times before, Coast to Coast Wales, as well as West (Aberdaron, Wales) to East (Flamborough, England)
Purchased/Fitted - first shakedown test all good half way H on tow path loose rattling fell off - see attached photos
Obviously I’m not the most “gifted” mechanic !!! Any help / advice / solution much appreciated I’ve obviously done something wrong ?
Thanks in advance (Rookie Tourer)

Strong rims and construction I am 115kg and carry 5-10kg with me when riding
Spokes 32 or 36 - will 32 be strong enough for me or should i...
So the last two tours I've been on I've ridden my first road bike love, my B'twin Triban 3. We've been to Wales and Scotland together, here's a photo of it in the Cairngorms:
Ah, happy memories :) In the past 6 months or so there's a new steed in town, my 1984 Dawes Galaxy.
Of course, this...

So I fly to gran Canaria at the end of the month. I stay at a hotel for 2days, then pick up hire bike and literally am cycling around and on top of the island. I have one night stays at different accommodations Friday, saturday and Sunday, Monday the bike goes back and I check in to a place for...

Looking for something for mostly road light touring (rear panniers, comfortable, not bothered about speed) but also capable of moderate off road. Don't plan on lots of fast technical riding.
Lots of eyelets for guards and racks.
