Of course, to be a true slow cyclist you don’t have to go very far! Before going away to France I put my tent up in my friend’s garden. The food and wine was so good I got head-spin and did not get much sleep. This is why I rarely drink on holiday – I really don’t need to!
This was also when I discovered that my seat post was wobbly and the wrong height so it was good to iron out these little niggles. On my return home I started to gather all my kit for the panniers together to be weighed, sorted and re-weighed to hone it down to absolute essentials.
