    However, I did ride the Pennine Bridleway earlier this summer from Middleton in Wirksworth to Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria, a mere 205 miles of old drovers roads and public bridleways which was far more interesting than posting shite on here in the off season

    Hoping to do the North Coast 500 in 6 weeks time in the far North of Scotland and the Reivers Way between Whitehaven and Tynmouth over a weekend in early September.

    I think this is the official website for cyclists

    https://www.adventurecycling.org/rou...america-trail/

    Crazy Guy on a bike is full of journals by folk who've actually ridden it giving a far greater insight into the challenge you seek to undertake.

    Hope that helps for starters. Need anything else, just ask.
    All good stuff Keith. Noted you aiming to do the NC500 soon. Let us know how you get on as I am thinking of doing this some time in late September. Giving myself 7 days.

    PS to coincide with picking up my new Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Di2

    Nice bike, someone's in the money

    I've done the NC500 before but made the mistake of following the route as originally intended, but there's quite a lot of fast A roads to contend with which didn't faze me particulary, but I'm doing it this time with a few friends who don't have the same experience. GCN posted an alternative route earlier this summer which negates many of the faster roads while staying true to the original route while avoiding a hell of a lot of the motorhomes that cause all the grief.

    Savage! But a great stage 6. Good route design to bring a strategic focus in so early.

    Awesome ride from Thomas too, Calmly destroyed Alaphilipe in the last 200m.

    A lot of riders had 36t on the back today, almost no pressure on the crank - spinningup 25% climbs.

    Savage!

    Quite a weird and irrational hatred to have is the hatred of mountain bikers(?) Maybe his Mum's run off with Kenny Kona.

    Wankers.

    So much unjustified disdain towards cyclists.

    Did anyone watch the ‘Cyclists, the scourge of the streets’ documentary this week?

    That vigilante guy though. Fair do's I think he'd been hit by a car while cycling but the bloke was only trying to park his wagon. Also, the girl on the phone when old Bill was lecturing her was perfect. A postcard from modern Britain.

    They hit his kid in the carrier apparently. He was a bit of an annoying jobsworth but I can understand what drives him.
    Yeah, depressing, She should have had the book thrown at her.

    I had one yesterday, she sped by me giving me about half a meter clearance and was on her phone. 4x4 as well.

    Honest mate, the gloves are what I use on the bandsaw. I egg windscreens as well when the correct prey comes along on quiet country lanes, they inevitably use their wipers which means visibility is impossible, they pull over and our van turns up and we rob them.
    It’s good pay for a days cycling.

    Hell no I don't, but come visit me. Let's have a full.

    We all need to have a full at some point and reminisce about the Dougie era and what could have been.
