I have prepare by pouring white spirit over my canelbak, losing my tyre levers and buying some non matching and possibly inappropriate clothing, including some roadie shoes. But I did buy an energy bar, so that's ok. :-D

Being as my lowest ratio is 26/28 when I am used to 22/32 I was a little worried. Then I spied the 20t ring on a Suntour microdrive chainset I recently required...... Tempted!!

Fingers crossed and safe journey to all.

Jealous as hell? Me?

Too 'kin right I am - sitting here Friday morning (my only day off this week...) browsing through this thread wondering exactly why I bother working my *rse off the way I do only to have to miss out on all this good craic :oops:

Derbyshire is my home county (lots of relatives I haven't seen for years...) and I don't get up enough as it is, but I shall be in a foul mood all weekend knowing what I'm missing out on :evil:

Hope you all have a cracking weekend and I look forward to the 'aftermath' thread...

All the best from a wet and dreary East Sussex
