Drove up to Bolton from Mum's - 45mins. I plan to be making this trip tomorrow morning at 4am so it was a test ride today. The split site transition makes registration very complicated - first at the Reebok stadium to sign up, then to a school a few miles away to drop the run bag, then to Pennington flash 15miles to the south to drop off the bike and bike bag.
On my own this year so it was surprisingly quick and easy - no children to drag around. Only looking to get round this year with my cold hanging around, so nerves were a lot less and no rechecking everything.
Evening meal with Mum then in bed for 8.30pm. Made up my two drinks bottles for the bike - carb'd to the max
