OK, so I needed some reassurance I’d get my new Schwalbe tyres on and resorted to watching Merlin (cheeky from a fellow fungus face) literally magic a tyre on to a wheel: its all about pushing that bead hard into the wheel all the way round. And having some toe straps to keep it in there, apparently.
Tyres, tubes, shorts and leg warmers (midge proofing!). And I only went online looking for new ‘boots’. Love this part of the trip prep.!
Taunton Flyer on Saturday: need to get these bad boys unpacked and fitted after work tomorrow. And eat some pasta!
