Le Grand Tour: T-2 Days

CURRENT LOCATION: Still at homeโ€ฆ

The bike has been returned from its service, the kit assembled (if not packed), the last-minute purchases (nutsโ€ฆ) made, the train ticket to Hull booked, accommodation for the first three nights (four including the overnight ferry) sortedโ€ฆ All that remains is two days of procrastination (and a bit mor Wimbledon and wine). I finish work for the summer later today.
