Grumps!...nice kit..if all else fails you can always sell Petrol...and as mentioned do seem to have found somwhere to stow the spare socks!

Anyway..on the ar#e ache subject??watch out for over use on the old creams..not for nefarious reasons but you might soften up and cause more harm than good. Routine change to position ON the saddle helps me on distance rides. Vary the pressure point..

To be honest I have had more probs with the palms of hands and the shoe clip pressure points so don't ignore those. This looks like a massive exercise in body management.

Right, so Blog access and comment well and truly tested. Watch out for immigration in Leeds. We don't let just anyone in these days! Good luck mate.. Oh and I have no doubt that you will complete the ride....but if you DO update the blog every day..I'll double my donation.....felling safe there then! :-).
