Packing a bike.....

OK so I've done it once... I'm not sure that I'll do it again..packing the bike up for flight that is..... Oh but then I've got to come home with it next week and oh yes there's that little Lisbon trip - ok so maybe I will and maybe next time the pedal's will be easier (after all I'll know what I'm doing... and for those of you who use Look Keo's to undo, the right pedal (as you look at it through the bike) goes clockwise and the left goes anti)... blinkin thing! Still safely in big bag with muchos quantities of polystyrene around it - lucky I got the new dishwasher when I did and hadn't chucked out the packing is all I can say!

Obviously now on final countdown to La Santa and my work and home "must do before I got to do list" keeps on getting longer..... go figure

Still I got a swim in this morning, 2.1k in 1hr - mainly drills and a main set looking like 400, 2*200, 4*100...... all felt relatively ok - I'm thinking about high elbows in the water... "and reach over that barrell and pull".... that's what you're supposed to do isn't it?!

OK - it's late - and I've got a list as long as my arm! YIKES!


  1. Woo hoo! Now I got somebody to ask if I ever need help packing my bike. How cool is that? :-)

  2. yea.. I switched the pedals once on mine.. you got to watch out for stripping those threads.

    Enjoy the trip!

  3. Oh boy, I don't even want to think about packing a bike! Like Wes said though glad I know who to ask!
