Thank you all.
Fly out in the morning. Will try and knock out a final blog piece overnight and have it up tomorrow.
During the ride I will be doing shorter daily blog posts for Reactions Magazine reactions.net They will open them up and allow access without a password. A link will appear on the Lloyd's Wellbeing site. I will also tweet on @cliveoconnell
Very busy at work which makes preparation difficult and promises to infringe on recovery time each evening.
Good news is that temperatures are down to 27 or thereabouts which is manageable. Bad news is that this is caused by a northerly wind which will blow into our faces.
I am as prepared as I am going to be. Fingers crossed for a safe ride with no mechanicals.
Thank you all for your support and advice. it has meant a huge amount to me.
