Bikepacking in England is back on the menu 🎉 , so of course we celebrated by the revival of School Night Bivvi Club.
Such a blast to get back to it again, the excitement of heading out after work when everyone else was heading home, climbing on stony Cotswold trails in the setting golden sun, carrying layers upon layers and a nearly full bottle of Jura to help keep us warm as the temperatures plummeted overnight...
I was so glad to wake a little after 5am after a brilliant sleep, for that momentary pause of silence before the dawn chorus got into swing. First the distant pheasant, cooing wood pigeons and trilling blackbird, then joined steadily into a cacophony of sound: robins, tits and treecreepers all joining in too.
After a very causal start, we packed up camp and parted ways, riding back into Bristol with birthday boy Dan very much ready for a hearty breakfast.
This looks lush!
Epic! Is there a way of joining the next one?
Fantastic write up,
Full bottle of life. Greetings from Berlin

My daughter loved the idea of this! Did you have to get permission to camp? Ta.

Love the finisterre hammock what’s it like for wild camping paired with the DD underblanket?
Yep Alan, we have permission from the landowner. Emma, yeah works well, from a salvage fabric save a few years back!
