CYCLINGI came across this recently and I learned two three things from it: How to properly use the straps on my ortlieb; a great way to tie down my rack pack and an alternative to a front bar bag if you have a front rack: The UNtour
OTHER PEOPLES TRIPSBOOK - Slow Coast Home by Josie Dew - Josie's 5000 mile cycle around the UK coast - Josie is a heavyweight tourer like me.
BOOK - One man and his bike by Mike Carter - a good book however it quickly became clear that he had a lot of things prepared which didn't tie up as the impression he gave about himself at the beginning of the book was at odds with this, which disapointed me.
BOOK - The Great Bike Ride: Around the World in 80 Days by Nick Sanders - I loved this book and it took me back.. Out of print now but available on amazon for 1p!!
BOOK - 22 Days Around the Coast of Britain- I liked this book but not as much as around the world in 80 days - Out of print but available on Amazon for 1p
