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.

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.
Bach without a doubt.

Same here.
And my dad was a bus inspector, so he heard it a lot too.
What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Long, long ago on the (wrong) way to Narbonne.  I didn't really need that much stuff.

Sic transit and all that..

Taking delivery of these guys we had built up for touring next week.
The trouble is that we are still marooned at home in Bermuda which is 20 square miles. We were supposed to be touring in France on them about now.
Ah well there is always next year!

Are you worried about losing each other in a crowd ?

Stunning setups you've got there.

Here's one from my recent (cut short after tent pole failure), tour through Norfolk and Lincolnshire with little Joe.

Fully loaded?  That's stripped for racing!

I have a tent, quilt and mat in the saddle bag, a pair of shoes underneath it and clothes in the handlebar bag. Carbon tent pole strapped to the underside of the top tube. Clothes in the handlebar bag and tools/spares in the small top tube wedge. Odds and ends in the fork bag. All bags made by me to fit this bike.

Never done any racing, but like to travel light. More bag space just means carrying more, but also understand that people like to carry more.

Wow!  I have much to learn from you when it comes to packing light!

Definitely not stripped for racing! Nice contrasts.
