Yom Kippur is the ideal day to prepare for a long distance ride -not actually pedalling, but time to check all the bits and pieces of equipment and agonise over the weight of my back-pack.
Tomorrow I set out by riding down to the Leeds station and taking three trains to Conwy on the northern coast of Wales. I have to remember to tell the train driver to stop there as it is only by request.
I start my riding proper on Monday.
I haven't mentioned the weather forecast, but it isn't good. Anyway, it made the decision of including the sun-screen cream, very easy.
