    The tarp is a Silwing, which is great as you have a massive coverage for very little weight and space

    The pole is made to measure to fit my tent and is perfect for the tarp as well, it was from Stuart at Bear Bones Bike Packing

    I've now upgraded to a carbon pole

    Just bought one of these. Just right for our tour of Holland in July.

    I seem to have bought the last one as they have disappeared from the site.

    Red was £80 cheaper than green ^_^

    I like eurohike got this one as an 'upgrade' to my previous one I've had for almost 20yrs. Has a sewn in groundsheet, is pitched fly first and plenty room enough for me and dog and stuff. It's stable, very easy to put up myself, fine in the rain and not bad at all for £40 have backpacked with it looking forward to cycle camping on my days off if the rain ever stops :smile: IMAG0787.jpg

    My Vango Helix 100. It is quite light, but it is a bit claustrophobic!
    Not being a huge fan of cycle camping, I use it as a last resort. (It's the extra weight to carry around, plus I like a proper bed with en-suite facilities!).

    Can be almost en suite if you pitch very near the shower block lol. It's lucky that I do like camping as I have a dog shame as I liked youth hostelling when younger would like to again :smile:

    A bit of after cut lawn fertiliser would enhance the photograph

    That was after the first cut of the year. It's only had 2 since due to the amount of rain we have had.

    I bought that, some one mentioned them on here, mine was a tenner iirc. - down from £15 in the sale.

    Probably a little small for longish tours or giants (over 6ft).
