Adventure with Anna & John
The bike was already dismantled last weekend. My headache this morning is how to carry the huge bike bag to the morning's first arriving commuter train in time. It will take me to the airport, where I‘ll meet up with Anna. I'm not worried about her. She will be there on time, with everything brought with her. Entirely correct! She is there! And, it was a tough walk for me to pull a 21k-nonwheeled bicycle bag to the shuttle. When on site, the rest of the morning is just like a bed of roses.
Standing nervously waiting for John. I've managed to minimize the packing, to get it all into my bike bag. We are traveling to Yorkshire to end the bicycle season with a 100 miles race held by HM Revenue & Customs, Sports & Leisure holding ECSA’s European road cycling championships. However, all my concerns are about the tough track profile with almost 2,500 altimeter. A really tough challenge. Can I do this?
There comes John! Oh no... overweight in the bike bag ... how much of it can I transfer to Johns luggage? I who had packed everything so nicely. Wonderful! John has a few pounds left in his bags. We are on our way and next stop is Manchester. All bags show up on the belt and we meet Mike. Is it possible to pack all our luggage into his car? We really push the luggage into the car and hang Mikes racer on a bicycle rack. Wondering if the bikes are all right after this?
