>Bluebirds? No, I’m not going to Cardiff, well not this week as far as I know. The title will be come apparent when you read on.
I’ve actually managed to get some cycling in this last week. i managed around 190+ miles last week in total, being a Sunday ride of 40 miles, 3 days commuting at 40+ miles and one day halfway commuting (I didn’t cycle home as I went to Nottingham for the weekend by train). I have then managed another 100+ miles this week so far, but only did 22miles on Monday as I travelled down from Nottingham by train.
Saturday was a chance to catch up with that *ahem* nice Mr Tr*lf*rd M*lls when I went up to Barnsley and showed him a copy of the http://www.nufc.com/ website from the 26th anniversary of THAT Brighton cup tie. He took it in great spirit and kept a copy of the printout for his scrap book. At least he can take a joke.
Anyway, back to the title of this thread….I’m not cycling to work tomorrow as I’m off to the South coast to make an appearance at Dover magistrates’ court – purely to observe – honest. Hopefully the court will finish early as I have to get back to London for a committee meeting of Lee Valley Youth Cycling Club in the evening.
Now, how is the planning for LEJoG coming on? i think I have most of the items I need. I have yet to try to see if I can manage to get all my kit into the saddle and handlebar bags.They are rather small bags. Hopefully it will all fit. I may try tomorrow to pack those bags. If the kit doesn’t fit, then I am not sure what I will jettison as I am already travelling with as little kit as I can.
The route planning has only got as far as Lancaster so far. I did have the route to Carlisle planned, but forgot to save it on the PC – D’oh! Any ideas on routes North of Carlisle?
