Setting off from Bournemouth tomorrow morning. I think everything's ready - trains and hotels booked, bike cleaned and tuned up, panniers packed, maps ready.
I've taken the week off from cycling as I rather overdid it last week, riding most days and not giving myself time to recover, so should be nice and fresh tomorrow.
Weather forecast for the weekend is good: sun, a little cloud and gentle tail wind. Perfect conditions!
Off to catch the train down from Birmingham New Street. I pre-booked to guarantee a bike space and I've got 1st Class for the price of standard - not sure what they will make of me in my shorts!
