Bike Ready and Rider Tracking

Ade's Road Cycling BlogHere’s the bike loaded and ready.  At the back is a Carradice Barley saddlebag, and on the crossbar is a Topeak Fuel Tank.  This gives me about 8 litres of storage which is enough as we are travelling extremely lightly.  I’ve 3 lights at the front which should pump out about 500 lumens at full power, and more importantly run on disposable batteries that I can replace at the bag drops.  The mudguards (front one not on yet) are clip-on SKS race blades.

Touch-wood it (and me) all hangs together!

If you are interested, there is rudimentary rider tracking (updated at each control) at the following link

    Go you good thing! I see you are making fantastic progress through the tracker. I have been following your progress every time I log on to check my friend’s progress

    Ade, well done! I started my stint at Eskdalemuir a couple of hours after you’d passed through. Now perhaps you can finally start UN- training……..

    Congratulations Ade! Just saw that you have finished the LEL2013. That’s brilliant. My friend finished an hour or two ago too
