>Go West

>Well, my bags are just about packed. Just waiting for the tumble drier to finish, then it will be time to finalise the packing. Put recharged batteries in the GPS, charge up the lights (just in case), and then breakfast and away. No, silly, the GPS , batteries & lights are NOT in the tumble drier.

Like some sad masochist, I have been up since silly o’ clock this morning, surfing the net, looking at the route profile for the first few days. It seems to be vertical, apart from the parts that are steeper!

Is it too late to develop swine flu?

Oh well, in for a penny in for a pound.

Seriously, albeit a bit apprehensive and nervous, I am looking forward to this trip. I’m off to Paddington to get the 12:06 train to Penzance. Five hours on a 125 train :-(. At least I am in 1st Class, so will make full use of the free tea and coffee they provide. Then when I get to Penzance, meet up with friends and a curry, before an early night and then breakfast time tomorrow it all kicks off.

So, in accordance with the title of this thread, I am about to Go West!

About spen666

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
