Unashamedly excited!!!!!!!!

It's now a matter of hours. As I write, 50 hours to go until I get my Cannondale Gemini 1000 on Sunday 12-noon!!!!! Yippee!!!!

Monday is a UK national holiday, so you know where I'll be.

I have never been so excited about a bike in my life.

I have a new Camelbak Mule, new Shimano shoes, new Eggbeaters, new rags to ride in.

Unashamedly excited!!!!!!!!

I'm just over 50 miles on my new road bike. I know the feeling! Congratulations and enjoy.

As someone said to me "Take a picture of the cassette. It will never look that good again

Southwater Cycles in Southwater. It's about 3 miles from Horsham, 10 miles from Crawley.

You're not planning on mugging me by any chance, are you?

Can you take the suspense? You'll have to let us know how you like it....once you can tear yourself away from the bike.

BTW, Bokkie... great match when the Boks beat the Wallabies last week. Great fun when it goes down to the wire like that... And it gave my All Blacks the Tri Nations...

Thanks guys. I have about 15 hours to go as I write! I feel like a 4yr old kid (any kid for that matter, in fact anyone for that matter) who can't sleep on Xmas eve!

Yes! It was good to see the bokke beat the Ozzies in the rugby. The better team won it outright. The one that came last, deserved to finish second.
