Time To Up The Ante...

With my ride to Switzerland only two months away, it's about time I stepped up the mileage.

But with an increasingly active 3-month-old boy and plenty to be getting sorted around the house and garden - as well as a full-time job, of course - the challenge is: when?!

So killing-two-birds-with-one-stone is very much the order of the day.  One answer would be for me to power my laptop by some Heath Robinson (no relation), bicycle-powered contraption.

The other is to combine any necessary trips with a bike ride whenever possible, hence the trip to my Dad's the other weekend (60 miles), and now something a bit bigger - we're going to my brother's in Cheltenham on Saturday, so there's a chance to do 90+ miles...

Bike route 498692 - powered by Bikemap 

Once you get past the M42 it's downhill to Redditch and then pretty flat until Cheltenham.  With any luck I can have my elevenses at my favourite Italian pork bap emporium on the Evesham bypass too.

I've added Leckhampton Hill onto the end - more in hope than expectation - just in case I've got a bit of juice left when I get there.  It's looks reasonably short, but certainly more than steep enough...

If I can do that, I should be fine cycling to Switzerland.
