Countdown to Tour of Scotland…

InnerTuba will depart from Morecambe, NW England on Tuesday 14th April. I’ll pedal all the way to John o Groats and back again – a total distance of well over 1,000 miles.

I’ll publish more details of the itinerary in another post…  for now enjoy these photos, all taken last week.  They’ll give you a flavour of the technical preparations which are running alongside musical progress. In short – it’s all happening !
