I’m writing this, sat in our trusty VW camper, overlooking Sennen Cove and have just watched a fantastic sunset over the sea with my wife, Jane and son Charlie.
Our location is down to the generous support from Wendy & the Nicholas family who run the Trevedra Farm Campsite and impressive Ocean Blue café, where I had my “last supper” before tomorrows Grand Depart.
I’m packing and repacking my pannier even though I’ve got it down to a fine art. Its just nerves. I had too long to contemplate the challenge ahead whilst driving down the route I will be riding back up north, and too much of a view of the rolling hills through Devon and Cornwall, along the unhealthy looking A30.
All I’ve read about the “LEJOG” suggests that its this first 2-3 days that are the hardest, before you get “into a rhythm”.
An early night ahead, but unlikely I’ll sleep well. I’m just wanting to get on with it now…
