From my last tour and 400 in Belgium (left the sleep system and bar bag at the HQ for the brevet).

This photo is my phone wallpaper. It was from the last day, riding west on the Belgian coastline towards Dunkirk and the ferry.

People often remark that it looks like a parachute hanging off the back but it works 💁‍♂️

My first cycle-camping trip in decades (last September) - just arrived at the campsite near Rutland Water (but no view of the reservoir from the campsite).  Extra off-bike clothing and shoes taken for a family visit in Lincolnshire after the camping hence all the luggage.

That certainly is heavily loaded. But heavy loads can be good too! Hope you enjoyed it and maybe are planning the next one.
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

Thanks  :)
I'm hoping to do a couple of short trips with tent when I get the chance and, all things being well, I'm hoping to get a short tour in with my nephew in the summer.

Wing, I assume? Has been the venue of a fair few YACF camping weekends.

Same here.
And my dad was a bus inspector, so he heard it a lot too.
