I've decided to use my carbon race bike this time instead of Maid Marian II - my touring bike. No particular reason, other than I fancy a change.
Bike: Trek Madone 5.2 (She is called Medusa) with SRAM Rival and Tri Bars for comfort
Rims: Mavic Aksium - A bit heavy but stronger
Tyres: Continental GP400s 23c
Pedals: MTB SPD so I can use MTB shoes to walk around in. Will do the actual climbs in boots though
SPOT GPS tracker - so friends can follow my progress
Bryton Sport cycle navigation
ONE23 1000 lumen light for night cycling
Two water bottles
Spare inner tubes and repair kits
Total weight: 9.4kg
Thats pretty much it. We have a support car that is carrying most of the other gear, which is why I can afford to go fairly lightweight.
