I’m getting ready to hit the road inside the next few hours, with the little lad, the bike and almost all the cycling gear I have in my possession making the trip west too. It’s impossible to say at this stage what the weather’s going to be like on the Westportif tomorrow but coldish, a bit on the wet side and a touch too windy for comfort would seem to sum up the downside prediction for the day.
To be honest, tomorrow is what’s uppermost in my mind right now but no sooner than that’s all over, it’s right into the maelstrom of the Connacht final the day after. If anything, the forecast for Sunday looks worse – a right dousing appears to be on the cards for then – but there’s nothing that can be done about that at this stage either.
I doubt that I’ll be adding any further pre-match thoughts here tomorrow – the laptop and the bike don’t mix – but will check in at some point on Sunday morning before setting out for Hyde Park. Right, back to the packing.
