Tomorrow I go to the London Nocturn. The more I read about it or view clips on YouTube the more daunting it seems.
It will be over quite quickly as the course is 1.1km per lap and the three laps will be rapid.
Thoughts do turn again to what Brompton to take. The route seems fairly flat and the simplicity of just two gears does appeal.
There are heats first which and if you are fast enough you might be lucky to progress to the final. That would be great but we'll have to see. One slight disappointment is the fact that there doesn't seem to be any sort of medal etc.., for taking part. (I am easily pleased).
I will also be attempting to film my exploits with a GoPro Hero 2. Heaven knows what this will turn out to be like but I suspect I will bore my family to death with its footage in glorious 1080p HD.
