>Well, its not me who is blue today, although my language maybe.
I managed to get 43 miles in today which i was pleased with given the weather was rather windy. I cycled the long way to work, doing 21 miles into a strong head wind, and had a tail wind home. Better that way round than the opposite.
I finally got the chance to use my saddle bag as I now have the replacement bracket for it.I thought I would try riding to work with it for a few days to ensure I have worked out how to fit it and to see how it affects the handling of the bike. It feels odd not to be carrying a rucksack and as I set off both this morning and tonight I had the feeling I had forgotten something. It was just the feeling of freedom from the rucksack straps.
I do have to say that I am starting to panic at how small the saddlebag is. I do not know how I am going to get all my kit in it for two weeks cycling. It is starting to look as if I will either whiff a bit by the time I get to JoG or I will have to try to find a launderette at regular intervals on the way.
No cycling tomorrow as I’m back to the Crown Court sitting at Canterbury for a spot of drug importation, money laundering and the like.
Only 60 days to go
