Departure.

And so it begins. I’m on the platform at Lincoln railway station, and have 20 minutes or so to wait for my train to Newark. It’s strange riding a bike loaded with so much gear, but even the ten minute ride down here from home was enough to get used to the different handling. Very stable at mid to high speeds, and the weight isn’t all that noticeable on the flats (I may change my view on that…ask me after 300km), but obviously much harder work and slower going uphill.

I almost hit my first hurdle (not literally) immediately, when the lift across the tracks was only just long enough to fit my bike. Many more to come I’m sure…
