First day of our trip from Winchester to Glasgow by bike. The morning slipped past without much incident, but my mind was still racing through my lists, and worried I’d forgotten something.

We stopped at the Row barge Inn for lunch and then pressed on – quickly getting tangled with the A340. My bad! Lunch and the buzz of traffic killed my legs and I suffered for an hour or so as we sped onwards trying to get onto quieter roads.

Now lying in bed (thank you Matt and Alice!), showered, and feeling slightly nervous for the harder and longer days to come. It’s all in the head, right?
