I pretty much followed the Greenbank sartorial approach until Villaines in the way back, although my arms covered in dew cycling through the mist on the way into Brest got me pretty chilled. This was because in my pre-ride frenzy to reduce weight being carried I mistakenly ditched the arm warmers.

I eventually realised I could have bought replacement arm warmers at one of the controls and did so at Villaines, so wore them the final night.

David acquired yet another reflective vest as part of his SkyRide leader's role today. He does not want it. It is polyester mesh (so not too hot & sweaty) size XL, EU HVW100 compliant in a fetching shade of fluorescent pink. Free to the first person who sends me a large, self-addressed Jiffy Bag...

You can check my article about reflective vests. Unfortunately it is in finnish, but pictures say more. :)

Hot topic.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
