While cleaning my back wheel, I found a worrying crack in the freehub. It might last a while before failing completely, but I'm not going to take the chance.
So I spent this morning hunting around London looking for a decent wheel that would suit 'the larger rider', before handing my bike to the guys at 'on your bike' to be taken to Corsica.
Meanwhile, jo's cousin Alistair has been cycling from Lands End to John o Groats. 64 hours in, and they have reached Brora - about 50 miles short. He should finish in about 66 hours - which is an awesome achievement. I know which feat is harder, and it's not my French trip!
