Day 345
Well, now I am all ready. My stuff weighs about 14 kilos including 3 litres of water. I can hardly believe I'm really going to Forum on my bike! I went for a practice ride with my bike fully laden - it was fine. I expect to arrive on Sunday and should be able to post a message that I have - or Ralph will. Back in time to celebrate Julie's Day 365! 4 km cycle

Hey Alison. I happened across your blog a little while ago and have been following. You have me thinking about my bicycle again, especially with global warming thrown in. I hope you have a fabulous time. Who knows where this might lead!?

Cheers,
Hilary

Have a careful but super time. Go steady on the Panadols as they cause constipation!
