My bike is not the world’s lightest bike. Neither is it the heaviest. Or at least I thought not.
I rode it into work fully loaded this morning. That was a shock to the system. It now tips 20kg on the scales without water bottles. Now, I know that’s not much compared to those who camp on the way but on my last trip the whole bike with kit weighed in at about 14 kg. That was a lighter bike but I don’t know where the extra weight has crept in.
And talking about extra weight creeping in, I am about 8kg heavier than when I rode JOGLE 🙂
So that’s about an extra 14kgs to be lugging across the country.
Oh well, it’s only really factor on the uphills. So at least half of the journey should be ok…
