Today is 7 October 2012 and I am all packed, ready to go. My bike is carefully tucked away in its special travelling bike-box. My last ride was a week ago and I have been quite glad for the rest since then. My legs seem to have benefited from being lazy but I hope doing nothing this week hasn’t had a negative effect on my overall fitness. I understand it shouldn’t have done.
It’s been a really busy week at work clearing my desk and I have managed to achieve what I needed to go away with a reasonably clear mind.
I seem to have been packing on and off all weekend and tell the truth am a bit fed up with it now! I really wish we were there and starting.
It is my son’s 18th birthday today, so happy birthday Jason – love you.
Thanks once again to everyone for their messages of support, good luck wishes and of course sponsorship. I promise to be sensible.
Watch this space for my next instalment from San Francisco!
