Weather forecast isn't fantastic but no matter, Harry and I are off to ride the National Forest 50km audax on the tandem tomorrow.
Did a bit of light fettling on the tandem last night - cycle computer, bottle cages, bar bag, rear tyre on the right way round (oopsy) - and we're all set. We've not done this distance together before, and I am mindful that for all his power and energy Harry is still only six. He had no trouble doing 30km over some quite exciting hills last week though. The route tomorrow looks to be as flat as pancake, so as long as we just keep the pedals (easier since we fitted some decent ones) turning we'll be fine. Minimum Audax pace over 50km is only something like 12km/h, so we can probably stop for a snooze in the middle and still be well inside the time.
