Bus or train - Portsmouth to Edinburgh- cheap

Having difficulty finding buses or trains to go  from Portsmouth to Edinburgh that will take a bike...this seems to be a problem in parts of Portugal, Spain and France....I took a blahblah car ride the other day (the owner was a cyclist and had bike transportation issues so totally squeezed me into his car!) and then rented a car for a section.  Thought UK would have been friendlier to my bike....any thoughts!? Ideas?

Cycling in South Sinai

I am flying to Tel Aviv in the end of November from where I want to do a cycling trip around Israel and Jordan.
I would also like to go to south Sinai with my bike. Anybody done that recently? I would like to enter Egipt at Taba or by boat from Aqaba. Than cycle to Sharm el Shaikh, El Tor, St. Catherine, Nuweibaa and back to Israel...
Is this doable, is it safe, are there many police check points or do they assign you a patrol or even take you to a certain (safe) point?

Help/info storage bags Auckland

Hello everybody, 

We are set for touring NZ by bycicle, yet we need a final bit of help: we would need to store a part of our luggage (two empty backpacks) in the region of Auckland for three months. Does anyone know a good place for a relatively low price?

Let us know if you have an idea!

Kind regards, 




PS: if anyone would be willing to store them, we will overload them with chips and chocolate :) (or anything else you like)! 

Bike spare parts in south America

Hi everyone!

I'll soon start a rather long trip from Ushuaia to Alaska. As I'm from Europe (France), I don't really know what to expect about spare parts for my bike in south America.

I'll ride a Kona Rove ST, a gravel bike with 650b wheels and 47mm wide tubeless tires. The train is 1x11 SRAM. How easy do you think it will be to get new tires or to replace gear parts?
