So my Audax ride of 125 miles is only a week and a day away. I am slightly nervous of doing this kind of mileage and slightly nervous of what the weather is going to be like (probably more the weather!). Also I have made a decision to upgrade my current bike instead of buying a new one which is approximately 2/3 the price. The upshot of this is that I can get the upgrade done in time for the audax ride as my current components are beginning to wear out! The bike is in the workshop as I type as the gear system has been complaining recently, although to be fair I have done 3500 miles on cheapish components so cant complain.
Just hope the upgrade can be done in time
