Here’s Al Sleet, the hippy-dippy weatherman

A look at the forecasts today opened my eyes a bit more than I’d hoped: the highs in France (Days 2 & 3 of the ride) are about 5 degrees lower than I’d expected from the long-range forecasts in February. OK, so make that two T-shirts under the (not actually) waterproof windbreaker.

Pretty much finished packing now. A separate vinyl bag for each day on the road: Two T-shirts, underwear and socks. It will be the same shorts and windbreaker throughout (as well as gloves, helmet, bandana).

Kind of optimistic now to think I’ll need sunscreen, but the temps are more of a worry for me than that. Glad to see the borrowed bike has full fenders.
