Hi George / anyone who knows the answer,
Also housekeeping / admin but noted that the above suggests no backpacks but also advises that we bring inner tube, pump etc. Someone kindly stole my saddle bag, I'm trying to borrow one but if I have no luck I think I'm going to have to bring a small one. Assume its advised just so as not to be weighed down rather than for any other reason?
Looking forward to tomorrow!
