Note to self:
1: Do not take a camera that you hasn’t use before, you will get bad shot when you’re not comfortable with it.
2: Get some strap on the camera so you can use it while riding and not worry about dropping the fragile thing onto the worn tarmac.
3: Don’t take enough food to feed the entire group, fruit, sweets and brownie is more than enough to consume you, especially when you’re planning to stop at a pub for lunch at halfway, the ride is only 75 miles.
4: Don’t take extra layers of clothes, they sound great to change to after a wet day of cycling, but it’s not necessary, merino baselayer and spare socks is enough for a day ride.
5: Get a better framebag, the cheap Abus one is too small and very unstable, barely waterproof to keep the camera dry.
6: Keep riding.
