• Now I just need to fix my bike.

    This trip is not my idea. It was conceived by @upstart, to whom I am indebted for the above routes. It was a multi-day ride to his wedding in southern France last September that gave me the overweening confidence I could manage a multi-day trip of this sort.

    Unfortunately, since a particularly gnarly London-Brighton off-road trip last November, my CX/gravel/overspecced bikepacking bike doesn't work quite as well as it should.

    Hopefully a hydraulic bleed tomorrow will sort it.

    Accommodation is booked (other than Glasgow), which means I am hoping to avoid sleeping in ditches. That also means I am hoping to get by without carrying bedding/tent. Maybe next time.
