I'm driving south tomorrow, heading to home territory.
The first Etape Pennines is being held on closed roads around County Durham.
It's a hilly 78 mile course through Weardale and Teesdale but so many people want to ride it, entries were sold out ages ago.
I'm not lookng forward to spending tomorrow night in a Travelodge beside a motorway, nor getting up at stupid-o'clock to reach the start. But I am looking forward to the ride. The Twitter feed alongside will show what I'm up to, but I won't be tweeting during the ride!
