Now weighing 17.5 kg the steed is ready to go. I will set off in an hour and a half to cycle the 12 miles to Plymouth Station, trying not to break a sweat before sleeping in the train. That will be a new experience. The train leaves just before midnight and gets into Paddington at 05:00. Not sure how fresh I will be. I then need to cycle to Liverpool Street and catch a train to Norwich. I only have five minutes to get the bike off that e train and onto the connector to Lowestoft, so I might miss it. Equally I am not sure you can take a bike on the train to Lowestoft, so it is possible I might end up cycling an extra 25 miles before the start.
Tomorrow looks sunny but with a strong headwind through flat country. Might be like climbing all day.
If the technology holds up I hope to post tomorrow to let you know how it went.
