Please Don't Let Me Forget Anything!
I'm not sure how many times I'm going to pack and un-pack my bike case before I actually accept that I have everything and just trust it to the baggage handlers (!) of Heathrow Airport...
I am convinced I will leave out a stem bolt/cap, pedal, chain or whatever miniscule but essential item that could prevent me from riding once I reach my destination.
I am currently on pack/un-pack number 3, each time I find I did pack the feared missing item, only to then convince myself I didn't re-pack something else!
Still, the Alps beckon in less than 24 hours, I'm feeling excited about the route, and optimistic about how I will be riding.
I have lots of classic climbs to tick off on this ride, and lots of awesome descents to scare myself on.
Just please don't let me forget anything...
