    A bit annoyed

    Locally theres a MTB group working with the forestry commission on how to build trails/features which are acceptable. Sadly some of the local kids still like to build where they like and sod everyone else. Its a bit like the difference between kids camping in the woods (with fags/booze) and...

    School me on Merino Wool t-shirts

    Depends how warm you run, but I couldnt wear anything under a shirt in summer.....I'd be a sweaty mess. I find my merino t-shirts warmer than cotton.

    Sleeping bag recommendation

    Dunno if you ever had them, but the 4thElement 2 piece undersuit makes for great thermals for bivi nights.

    Sleeping bag recommendation

    D, take a look at the bearbonesbikepacking site. You'll find some good tips there. FWIW, I use a travelpak3 for the winter, inside an army bivi. I wear thermals too, with that I've woken up toasty and covered in frost :)

    Starting from fresh.

A tent would be overkill for that particular style of hedgerow...
