Here’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
