test loading of bike into car boot in prep for @TheBHF #L2B
I thought I'd try a test loading of the bike into the car boot. It doesn't really need to be there until Saturday afternoon, ahead of the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton cycle ride on Sunday.
However, it is surprising how many small things pop up that are better handled in advance, with this test.
I've fixed most things now and got everything down to a low operating weight, although I will take my small backpack this time.
It drove me nuts last year carrying random loose items in damaged carrier bags once the bike had been loaded onto the articulated lorry for the return trip to Clapham Common.
