Finally off on our first weekend bike tour. Not a biggie.....around 40 miles from home to Wells-next-the-sea. Overnight in Wells and then take a different route home hopefully reducing the miles. Really excited.....but a little nervous too. The most mileage we've done is 25 on unladen bikes but we did pootle and have a couple of stops. It took us about 3 and a half hours so reckon spending the whole day doing 40 will be fine. We aim to head off around 8 am so we'll have plenty of time. Guess as long as we eat well over next couple of days and during/post ride, we'll be fine. Luckily as we are staying at the YHA rather than camping, we only need to take basics with us. Think my pannier will be full of food more than anything else. Just been reading up on nutrition tips on here....off to make some Flapjacks later! Will bore you all with some piccies soon enough.
