Despite it's tank-like good looks and almost-OD colourway, my do-most-things road/gravel/commuter/tourer bike is Swiss Army only in the sense that, like its iconic multi-too namesake, it can turn its hand to pretty much anything. Completely stock in these pics, I've just upgraded to some 105 bits after 9 months and over 4000km, as a little thank you for it being so lovely and reliable. Kinda heavy though, sorta feels like a tank sometimes too.
Taken on a FujiFilm disposable.
Took a long weekend to the country, expertly arranged by Mrs PR (thanks Jules x). As you'd expect for a holiday in Britain in February we got a soaking on a couple of occasions, but there was lots to like: multi-modal bike-train-bike journeys, cottage down dirt track, log fire, country pubs, ale, killer landscape, stars, golden hour stroll, overwhelming quaintness and, of course, good company.
BTW we were in Wedmore/Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, & credit for the pic of me obvs goes to the missus.
I spent months after reading the last issue researching wild camping spots on OS maps and the fill-ratings of 3-season sleeping bags, and with Spring just around the corner now's the time to get
back on it...
Issue 5 is out now.
