Note: Allan's bike is not the ideal touring machine, but, you use what
you've got right? The bike was not fitted with braze-ons for a rack, so the rack was fixed
using those plastic coated clip things - to the chain stay. These didn't work as well as
last year for some reason. I had to fiddle with and re-tighten them several times.
Again, the tyres (700x23 this time!) were fine. No punctures again.
Ribble Cycles never contacted us about sponsorship after
last year - maybe next year? ;-)
