Ready for a wee adventure

I’m just about ready to set out on a small touring trip, very small in fact being just one night but I’ve never done anything like this before so best not get ahead of myself.

Egor, perfectly balanced and ready to roll

I’ve set up an old steely 26er with pannier mounts to be my steed of choice as it, along with a number of other parts were hanging around my garage and needed some loving. Ive named the bike Egor as it’s butt ugly but it should be functional.

Hobo pocket stove

The aim of this and future trips is to ride somewhere on the road, swap from slicks to nobblies, do a mtb ride, put the slicks back on and ride home.  They’ll be a bit of sleeping in there also with my one man tent and hobo stove but that is basically it. Should be a good way on getting in some miles with a wee bit of adventure thrown in too.

Time to set off in the rough direction of Hamsterley Forest. Maps are for wusses 😉
