    11 ARR RAW: Bulk vs Comfort | Getting in to the Groove | What You Wear Under There | Fit for Riding

    ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers - Episode 11

    Featuring Shirley Hardy-Rix & Brian Rix, Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin with Guests Lisa & Simon Thomas

    Weight/Bulk vs Comfort
    As suggested by RAW listener, Paul Crowder “My suggested topic is. On a long trip is it worth sacrificing weight savings for comfort. In particular taking a larger tent and chair for when you are forced to hole up in bad weather.”
    How do you balance?
    What are you personal preferences?
    Are there things you take that aren’t the norm. Why?

    Getting in to the Groove
    As suggested by RAW listener, Rachel Lawson: “I’ve been lucky to do a couple of EU trips this year and all good but I've found I've suddenly got the urge to go home.  I worry if I did a "big trip", how would I get over that feeling. How do you cope & overcome that?”

    Under Garments for Riding
    What is your choice underwear?
    Do you use bicycle shorts, rider undies...

    Fitness for Riding
    Is there anything you do to stay fit for riding at home? And while on a trip?
    Dealing with stiffness, chafing etc. 
    Tips for personal comfort.
