Safer cycling – Aftershokz Trekz Titanium headphones

Here at GG2G we don’t like listening to music through headphones when we’re cycling for the simple reason we can’t hear the sound of the street around us, and that makes for unsafe cycling. One of the team was pulled up short by a copper who said headphones on  bikes...

LifeStraw-lifestyle
Go anywhere water filter – LifeStraw

Monovid-8x20
Leica Monovid

We can’t praise this pocket rocket mini telescope enough. It has been the most important, and popular piece of kit in the GG2G rucksack for a couple of years now. It’s size – five inches inside Leica’s magnetic flip-top leather case – means it takes up hardly any space in...
