Bike Loaded and Ready to Go…

…but am I?

Just want to get going now.  Before exam feelings threatening to ruin the next 36 hours.

I have kept the kit to a minimum and have only added about 6/7 kg to the bike, including the bags.  Of course I’ve added about 5 kg to me since my last LEJOG in October so overall I am going to be carrying more.  Maybe I’ll lose some weight on the way?  Didn’t last time – put a kilo on – got to keep eating 🙂

The tri bag on my cross bar hold my phone, wallet and camera for easy access.  There is an external battery strapped to my stem to boost the sat nav.  The bag mainly contains toiletries, clothes, spare food, inner tubes (x4 and sticking with the lighter tyres) tools, charging kit and various creams.

Maybe I should have washed the bike?  But then, what’s the point?  It will get muddy in the rain on the way to work tomorrow.
