    Ah thank you! They've come back to me, they'll repair it with a new strap if I send it up. Thanks though!

    I'm thinking I might try and enter this as a fallback, presuming it doesn't get canceled too.

    Yeah, though it's been 3 days and counting...

    Turns out the straps of a Barley are just too irresistible for the foxes of SE15.

    What are my options here, is this an easy DIY / local dry cleaner repair?

    With hindsight, that looks blissful :)

    Seems sensible I guess, given the number of international riders.

    Plus running it as an x-rated seems kind of pointless.

    Ah that's good to know!

    I felt like I was potentially missing out on some good infrastructure somewhere, as we crossed over a few segregated paths on our way through.

    Would love to ride to a ferry departure at some point that doesn't involve a half an hour of 30kph stem chewing to not miss it as well.

    Thought about attempting the 'do it in a oner' this year, just depends on how cold it gets overnight.

    A dip into France would have been a good way of doing it, but not sure lockdowns are going to permit.

    It's basically quiet lanes for the most part. We did the first section overnight so didn't see a single car but there's no major roads, even if you're doing in daylight.

    Portsmouth is the worst for traffic -there's no avoiding it, but there's a few fast roads and mega roundabouts.

    Probably didn't help that we arrived in morning rush hour and left during school run traffic.
