Cycling and more.
This blog started as a way to broadcast my photography and how I created it, to document my thoughts about it. Then I talked about my other passion; cycling.
But with the events of 2020 it became much more.
I opened up about my depression. At first it was easier to type here than talk.
First rides with my new bikepacking gear. It was time to test the Restrap saddle bag.
Previous post here. Would it swing around, or fall off? I say fall off because the front straps were a little short for the aero seat post on my Le Vita road bike.
I didn't want to go too far so I rode 22 miles of a mixed surface route that included some bumpy off road sections.

There are plenty of reviews for it, so I didn't expect any problems. I only filled it to about three quarters; and it didn't move about when I stood up on the pedals for the hills. The only concern was my rear light; the loop is too wide. When I stopped to take the second picture it was just about to fall off. I moved it to the drybag strap which appears to be a better fit in my case.
Today it was the road bike, this time to meet Matt in Westerham. All of the other bikes had minimal luggage. When the mudguards are left behind in the garage, it'll give a bit more room above the wheel.
It looks a bit like a sports car with a roof box. I think it's more "sporty" than a rack and bag combo though.
Nothing worked loose, in fact I didn't really notice it.
