Well folks that’s it. The last pre-event cycle ride is done and all that’s left to do is to clean and grease the bike and pack my stuff ready for Sunday.
The ongoing niggles of my new saddle are no longer an issue as it’s now nice and broken in but alas I sill have the occasional numb or sore feet. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to the bottom of that one. I’m confident though, I’ve been adding in hill cycles and I’m becoming more comfortable with the gears on my bike (can’t believe a year on I’m still talking about getting used to the gears) and I’m actually starting to get a little bit excited about the big day. It’s sure to be great fun, as long as it doesn’t absolutely piss down with rain or blow a gale like it has today. Fingers crossed!
I have to say thank you to all the fantastic people out there who have donated to Alzheimer’s Scotland on my behalf, the fantastic charity I am raising money for. You are great people, I’ve managed to beat my target of £300 pounds but if you haven’t donated yet you still can so grab your mobile phone or computer and donate. Every penny goes to making the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s just a little bit better.
Watch out for tweets and videos on the day, I’ll try to update you when I stop for water or a jelly baby 🙂
