It’s a brand new blog

This is of course version two, because version one just didn’t work. This one seems to be fine though, so all good. I’ve got the blog working, I’ve got my entry in, and I’ve figured out which front hub I will be using. That seems like it must be all I need to do.

I had a pretty good ride last weekend, except it was awfully hard and took a whole day longer than I planned. Still, these things happen, and I’m sure it won’t happen again, and the view was good. The good news is that we’ve got a very long weekend here, so plenty more time for riding from tomorrow!

Hello world!

OK, it is a go. My entry has been accepted, I’m going to race in Transcontinental No 5. And in the essential first step for any adventure, it starts with a blog!

I will be updating this through the preparation process. I will share the equipment I’m using, the training I’m doing, and the plans I am putting in place. There might even be a hint or two about my route. It will be riveting stuff! Well, maybe more riveting for other people planning similar adventures, but hopefully at least passably interesting for everyone else.

The blog is very basic right now, but the subscribe button works and the blog will get better and better as the race approaches, so I hope you’ll come with me on my journey to the start line!
