This board seems a bit busier than it was last time I was at CC, and it's been quite inspiring to read about other people's plans and to be directed to this site www.adventure-cycling-guide.co.uk. So I thought I'd just say hello . By the way, I was Eurostar at C+, then Nick H. at ACF. Now I'm Porkins at YACF. At the moment I'm trying to sell up and disappear on a multi-year tour/escape from real life. I'm half way through building a Dave Yates tourer. (I built the frame on his course.) I'm compromising between ultralight and luxurious. I'm also hoping to be aero by dispensing with panniers. This is because I have a silly obsession with raising my average speed and setting some PBs for daily distances.
