T-Minus 1 Day

So, final day before we kick off Mizen to Malin and everyone is pretty excited. Fortunately the chest infection is much improved, but with a short 55 miles to start with tomorrow, I should be in fairly decent shape  (Having said that there is a Cat 3 climb to negotiate in the Caha Pass, but we’ll deal with that when we get to it).

Yesterday was spent doing a whole lot of little things, like unpacking and repacking the gear, to make sure nothing was missed. I also managed to do some last minute tweaking to the bike itself. I tidied up the mudguards on the back  (one of the nuts fell off and no spares: some tidy work with cable ties have everything now secure). Also I cleaned the chain and re-lubed, and gave a final rub of proofide to the saddle: I’m hoping in some karma, if I’m nice to the saddle it might be nice to me over the 450-odd miles next. And as a final weight-saving measure I removed my Lezyne mini-pump (other lads have bigger frame pumps, so no point hauling it).

Here's the bike, with added rack and mudguards, minus the pump. Chain looks clean though!
